Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) Federal Contracting program

Changes to the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Certification Process


This initiative aids women-owned small businesses in competing for federal contracts. Before submitting an application, carefully read the eligibility criteria.

SBA also collaborates with federal agencies to increase contracting options and meet the government’s goal of having five percent of federal contracts awarded to women-owned small businesses by 2020. Keep an eye out for matchmaking events that combine both public and private procurement.
