RCG of North Carolina, LLC (RCG) was established in 2007, to provide quality, cost-effective products and services to the Federal Government and Large Federal Contractors. The company’s owner is Robert Guillot, a U.S. Army veteran with a history of creating cost-effective solutions for our customers and partners in the environmental, office, and medical supply industries. Today, many of RCG’s employees are veterans, and the company remains committed to supporting the veteran community.
With a core focus on the federal market, RCG is not your average SDVOSB. RCG employs an extensive team of government contracting experts, customer service representatives, field sales representatives, and many more talented individuals. With resources that surpass other SDVOSB’s, RCG is able to make sure government purchases receive the care and attention they deserve.
RCG is proud to offer a full array of supplies and services from the most respected manufacturers in the world, such as Amico, Airgas Healthcare, Raven Industries, Sorna, Xerox and many more. Vast arrays of contracting tools allow the government to purchase products through RCG easily, efficiently, and inexpensively.

A key component to RCG’s competitiveness in the government market is the status of being a verified SDVOSB (Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned, Small Business). The SDVOSB program is intended to honor business-owning veterans who incurred or aggravated disabilities in the line of duty by providing their firms with sole-source and set-aside contracting opportunities.
In 1999 the Veterans Entrepreneurial Act and Small Business Development Act (Public Law 106-50) established a contracting goal for federal agencies to award 3% of prime contracts to SDVOSBs. The Veterans Benefit Act of 2003 created the procurement program for small business concerns owned and controlled by service-disabled veterans. The purpose of the SDVOSB Program is to provide Federal contracting assistance to service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns.
In 2004 President G.W. Bush signed Executive Order 13360 calling for an increase in federal contracting and subcontracting opportunities for SDVOSBs. In 2006 President G.W. Bush signed into law the Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-461).
This law provides the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) with unique authority to conduct set-aside and sole source procurements with small businesses owned and operated by veterans. This legislation authorizes a unique “Veterans First” approach specific to VA contracting. This approach changes the priorities for contracting preferences within VA, placing SDVOSBs and VOSBs first and second, respectively, in satisfying VA’s acquisition requirements.
June 2012, General Shinseki (Secretary of the VA) gave clear directions to contracting officers to have a special focus reaching out to SDVOSBs for both prime and subcontracting opportunities in order for the VA to reach their goals.
