1. Sending solicitation letters to DVOB firms registered with the Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services and DVOB firms listed in the SDA vendor directory accessible at www.njsda.gov;

2. Making follow-up telephone calls to firms solicited at (a)1 above, and keeping a log of such calls and responses;

3. Breaking the work into smaller subcontracts, to make it easier for DVOB firms to compete;

4. Contacting relevant veterans' groups and other community groups for assistance in identifying DVOB firms;

5. Placing advertisements in local newspapers, construction trade letters, magazines, or special publications aimed at DVOB firms;

6. Negotiating in good faith with interested DVOB subcontractors, so as not to disqualify a prospective subcontractor without good cause; and

7. Assisting potential DVOB subcontractor firms by acting as a reference for the subcontractor, or by referring the subcontractor to the surety agent or bank officer of the contractor or consultant to satisfy bonding, insurance, or credit requirements.
