Women-Owned Small Business Contracting Rule
Name: Women-Owned Small Business Contracting Rule
Date: August 30, 2017
Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
The Small Business Development Center at Cleveland State is pleased to present, as part of our ongoing business training, the Women-Owned Small Business Contracting Rule seminar. Join us as Jacqueline Merritt, with the U.S. Small Business Administration explains, “Where’s the Money?” Federal agencies spend roughly $100 billion with small businesses on an annual basis. Research revealed that that federal government contract awards to Women-Owned Small Business (WOSBs) were limited and a subsequent study listed industries in which women were underrepresented and substantially underrepresented in the award of federal contracts. To address this issue, the WOSB Contracting Rule was implemented Feb. 4, 2011. If you are a woman-owned small business and fall in one of the designated industries, you can position your company to bid on federal government set asides for WOSBs and economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSBs). We invite you to attend the Where’s the Money Workshop to view a listing of the designated industries, learn how to position your company to bid on WOSB set-aside projects, and maneuver the www.fbogov website to find WOSB opportunities.
