What is the Small Business Administration (SBA) WOSB Program?

The WOSB Federal Contract Program was implemented in February 2011 with the goal of expanding the number of industries where WOSB were able to compete for business with the federal government. This program allows set-asides for WOSBs in industries where women-owned small businesses are substantially underrepresented.


With projects up to $4 million, the WOSB Program allows for directed contracting without a lengthy competitive process. This allows a project to begin in a timely manner. In speeding up the process, time sensitive projects can get started in days instead of months. This program also assists federal agencies in meeting their 5% WOSB contracting goals.
