10-WBC Becoming WOSB 101 3/13/24 (PRE-RECORDED)

On Demand
Until Jun 30
Topic: Government Contracting


To help provide a level playing field for women business owners, the government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contracting program.

These contracts are for specific industries where WOSBs are underrepresented. The SBA maintains a list of those eligible industries and their NAICS codes.

Joining the WOSB Federal Contracting Program makes a business eligible to compete for federal contracts set aside for the program. Firms can still compete.

BENEFITS OF ATTENDING THIS WORKSHOP/WEBINAR: • Learn how the U.S. SBA and our Resource Partners can help you and your business advance • Learn how women-owned companies compete for, and win, federal government contracts • Hear about the more than $26.2B in contracts that were awarded to WOSBs in 2021 • 5% of the federal government’s prime contracting dollars must be awarded to WOSBs • Learn how the WOSB, SDB/8(a), HUBZone and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned (SDVO) Programs help agencies achieve contracting goals

To be eligible for the WOSB Federal Contracting program, a business must: o Be a small business o Be at least 51% owned and controlled by women who are U.S. citizens o Have women manage day-to-day operations and also make long-term decisions
