Women-Owned Small Business Certification Deep Dive
Join us for a deep dive into the process of getting your Women-Owned Small Business Certification!
The Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) certification is available for qualified woman owned small businesses through the Small Business Administration (SBA). Joining the women’s contracting program can make the WOSB eligible to compete for federal contracts set-aside for the program. The WOSB set-asides are for industries where women have been historically underrepresented for example the construction industry. Some contracts are restricted further to economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSB) which adds the further requirement of income verification.
Webinar Topics Include:
- WOSB/EDWOSB Overview
- Program Requirements
- North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) WOSB/EDWOSB Codes
