Work in progress Dec 2000 - Congress added Section8(m) to the Small Business Reauthorization Act. authorizing Federal KO to restrict competition to eligible WOSB & EDWOSB Took six years to propose a WOSB program – determining NAICS codes Oct 2010 SBA Final Rule SBA regulation effective – 4 Feb 2011 FAR Implementation Effective 1 Apr 2011 New changes on the horizon talk later about them.
A NAICS code is a six-digit number assigned by the government to various distinct business industries. Purpose is to promote uniformity and comparability in the presentation of statistical data collected by various agencies by the United States government. Developed under guidance of Office of Management and Budget. Groups similar type industries according to output and annual sales. Federal procurements supplies, services , and construction are identified and solicited by assigned NAICS code.
EDWOSB status deals strictly with economics. An EDWOSB qualified as s “Socially and Economically Disadvantage Small Business” only if they are certified accordingly in the SBA’s 8(a) program.
Provided copy of NAICS codes through six digit designation More to come on statutory thresholds
Women Owned Small Businesses may elect to use the services of a Third Party Certifier to demonstrate eligibility for the program, or they may self-certify using the process outlined here on this website. SBA will only accept third party certification from these entities, and firms are still subject to the same eligibility requirements to participate in the program. Note, at the request of WBENC, SBA has approved WBENC only for the certification of WOSBs and not for the certification of Economically Disadvantaged WOSBs. Copy of Third Party Certification from an SBA Approved Third Pa rty Certifier Copy of JV agreement (if applicable) Copy of OMB’s WOSB/EDWOSB
Very important to provide all the required documents when self certifying – use the checklist that’s provided, get someone to review for completion – don’t want to miss an opportunity by not not having documents in proper order – KO will check and if it not all there they can’t make award. A third party certifier is a federal agency, state government, or a national certifying entity approved by the Administrator o provide certifications of WOSBs or EDWOSB. SBA maintain a list of approved third party certifiers. If they are not on the list they are not an SBA approved 3 rd party certifier. Don’t have to have 3 rd party certifier
Current Opportunities -
The law also requires the SBA to conduct another study to identify and report industries underrepresented by women-owned small businesses. As a result, more eligible women-owned businesses may be able to participate in SBA’s Women’s Federal Contract Program and compete for and win federal contracts.
