WOSB Seminar: Benefit from the New Set aside Ruling

Position yourself to benefit from the women-owned small business ruling.

Effective February 4, 2011, the Women-Owned Small Business set-aside program is moving rapidly toward implementation. Final regulations have been published and SBA is implementing websites required for self-certification.

Contracting officers (CO's) may begin to set aside contracts for certified WOSB's and EDWOSB's on February 4, 2011. The SBA is moving rapidly towards implementing the WOSB Program Repository and ORCA websites required for WOSB self-certification. Until the repository is completed or if the system(s) is/are otherwise unavailable, WOSB's and EDWOSB's will submit supporting documents demonstrating certification directly to the CO prior to each award. The Obama Administration supports women-owned businesses and there will be political pressure to make WOSB awards as soon as the program officially starts in February, 2011. Stay ahead of the rush and start marketing to contracting officers now! Those WOSB's that have completed their self-certification documents and necessary registrations will receive awards in the first quarter of 2011.

Why is This Seminar Different?

Pursuant to publication of the Final Rule, the SBA will begin implementing the women-owned small business set-aside program, known as the Women's Contracting Rule ("Program"). This means that federal agencies may set aside procurements for competition specifically for women-owned small businesses, provided that the subject procurement meets all criteria set forth under the Women's Contracting Rule. There are a limited number of seminars available for this specific topic. Most seminars that are available simply scratch the surface of the rule itself. Fedmarket's WOSB seminar is different in that we delve into the specifics of the Rule, the implications, and based on our foundation in federal government contracting, we are able to take participants to the next level on how to make the WOSB program work for you.
