Status & Details
TSM has been in operation since 2006. Our D-U-N-S number is 012488963. Our US Defense Logistics Agency commercial and government entity (CAGE) code is 8FQV5. Our new unique entity ID (UEI) is F4DQJ2667ZJ5, which became active April 4, 2023.
TSM was verified by the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) in 2020. The ownership of the verification process has since been given to the US Small Business Administration (SBA) and the entire verification process has become somewhat unpredictable. While TSM’s documentation reflects that its verification is set to expire in July 2023, interim/transitional program changes have allowed for a one-year extension period. Based on current strategic goals and experienced government system technical problems, delays, and policy instability, TSM is contingency planning to let this certification expire to further develop opportunities in adjacent real and intangible asset management market segments not requiring formal re-verification.
TSM’s record can be found on the VA’s official site here. The SDVOSB certification, now is managed by the SBA, remains the gold-standard for verifying a firm’s status for small business government contracting and commercial strategic supply-chain diversity programs.
For the uninitiated, the official federal veteran-owned verification process has effectively displaced all other small business certifications. The process has substantially changed in the past few years and has coincided with the decertification, debarment and/or prosecution of thousands of fraudulent and otherwise unqualified firms masquerading as veteran-owned or service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses in the federal contracting space.
