Navigating the Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) Certification

Navigating the Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) Certification

Thursday, July 28, 2022 10:00am to 11:00am

The Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) certification is available for qualified woman-owned small businesses through the Small Business Administration (SBA). Joining the women’s contracting program can make the WOSB eligible to compete for federal contracts set-aside for the program. The WOSB set-asides are for industries where women have been historically underrepresented for example the construction industry. Some contracts are restricted further to economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSB) which adds the further requirement of income verification.

Up until October 2020, woman-owned small businesses could self-certify for the program. The SBA now requires a full certification for qualified WOSB/EDWOSB through the SBA certification website.

In this webinar session, we will discuss the WOSB/EDWOSB requirements and how to certify in  

Webinar Topics Include:

  • WOSB/EDWOSB Overview
  • Program Requirements
  • North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) WOSB/EDWOSB Codes
  • Registering and navigating
