SBA Proposes Rule for WOSB/EDWOSB Certification

Today, May 14, the Small Business Administration published a proposed rule to require certification of Women-Owned Small Business Concerns (WOSB) and Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business Concerns (EDWOSB) participating in the section 8(m) WOSB Program.

A few notable items include:

  • certification applies to only those businesses who want to compete for set-aside or sole source contracts under the 8(m) Program

  • SBA will provide an electronic application process (free)

  • third-party certification requirements (certifiers must be approved by SBA and are permitted to charge a fee)

  • opportunity to request reconsideration

  • SBA will accept from the VA, VOSB or SDVOSB certification for women veterans

The proposed rule is lengthy and comments are due on or before July 15, 2019.

Proposed Rule: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2019/05/14/2019-09684/women-owned-small-business-and-economically-disadvantaged-women-owned-small-business-certification
