With the new changes taking place for Women-Owned Small Business Certification, join this webinar to get the updates! The WOSB (Women Owned Small Business) Federal Contract Program was implemented in February 2011 with the goal of expanding opportunities for WOSBs to win Federal contracts by providing a level playing field for WOSBs to compete. It is also intended to assist Federal agencies to meet the 5% contracting goals for WOSBs. The Program allows WOSBs to compete for set-aside contracts or receive sole source awards in industries where women-owned small businesses are substantially underrepresented. It also enables Economically Disadvantaged WOSBs (EDWOSBs) to compete for set-aside contracts or receive sole source awards in industries where women-owned small businesses are underrepresented.
