About the Event

The certification process for Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSBs) and Economically Disadvantaged WOSBs (EDWOSBs) has changed.

SBA has implemented Congress’ changes to the Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contracting Program (WOSB Federal Contracting Program). These updated regulations make it easier for qualified small businesses to participate in the WOSB Federal Contracting Program by improving the customer experience. At the same time, SBA is strengthening oversight and maintaining the integrity of the certification process.

After this presentation you will:

  • Understand the WOSB and EDWOSB certifications
  • Know the value of the certifications
  • Have the steps to take to become a WOSB or EDWOSB
  • Contacts to reach out to if you have additional questions.
