Unformatted text preview: WOMEN-OWNED SMALL BUSINESS (WOSB) PROGRAM Small Entity Compliance Guide to the WOSB Program December 2010 U.S. Small Business Administration A handbook for small businesses interested in learning about the WOSB Program, including eligibility requirements, Federal contracting opportunities, and how the program works in general. 2 Who Should Read this Guide? All small businesses that believe they may be eligible to qualify as a woman owned small business or economically disadvantaged woman owned small business should read this guide. What is the purpose of this Guide? The purpose of the guide is to provide an easy to use summary of the purpose and requirements of the WOSB Program. However, to ensure compliance with the program requirements, you should also read the complete rule on which the program is based. While SBA has summarized the provisions of the rule in this guide, the legal requirements that apply to the program are governed by 13 C.F.R. part 127, The Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Assistance Procedures. A copy of the rule is available on the U.S. Small Business Administrations (SBAs) website at www.sba.gov/wosb . A companion guide will be prepared for distribution to procurement personnel. The guide may be photocopied for distribution as long as the text and graphics are readable. Who can I contact about this guide or the WOSB Program? For more information on this guide or the program, please contact: Director, Office of Government Contracting, U.S. Small Business Administration, 409 3 rd Street, S.W., Washington, DC 20416. Your feedback is important. Please review this guide and contact us with any comments regarding its usefulness and readability, and improvements you think are needed. This document is published by the U.S. Small Business Administration as the official compliance guide for small entities, as required by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA). SBREFA requires that agencies publish compliance guides for all rules with a significant small business impact. These guides must explain in plain language how the firms can comply with the regulations. This guide has no legal effect and does not create any legal rights. Compliance with the procedures described in this guide does not establish compliance with the rule or establish a presumption or inference of compliance. The legal requirements that apply are governed by SBAs Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Assistance Procedures regulations, which control if there is any inconsistency between the rule and the information in this guide . 3 Table of Contents WOMEN-OWNED SMALL BUSINESS (WOSB) PROGRAM ......................... 1 SMALL ENTITY COMPLIANCE GUIDE TO THE WOSB PROGRAM ...... 1 BACKGROUND ON THE PROGRAM ................................................................... 4 WOSB AND EDWOSB CONTRACTING ............................................................... 5 CERTIFICATION ..................................................................................................10....
