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.
Topics that will be covered during the workshop:
• Program eligibility and benefits for obtaining the WOSB/EDWOSB Certification
• Learn about NAICS Codes underrepresented by WOSBs
• Learn about the WOSB/EDWOSB Joint Venture and Mentor Protégé process
Part II of this presentation will be geared toward your interest in doing business with the federal government. Learn the steps to selling your product and/or services to the federal government. Each fiscal year, the government spends over $500 Billion on goods and services. We will discuss how to identify which agencies procure what your firm offers, how to locate work for bid as well as upcoming procurement forecasts, and how to find the appropriate points of contact and small business specialists who can assist you in maneuvering through the process. Join us for an exciting webinar to get you started and on the right track to federal procurement success!
