Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contracting Program - CWE RI - Jan 25

To help provide a level playing field for women business owners, the government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the women’s contracting program.

These contracts are for industries where women-owned small businesses (WOSB) are underrepresented. Some contracts are restricted further to economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSB). The SBA maintains a list of those eligible industries and their NAICS codes.

Joining the women’s contracting program makes your business eligible to compete for federal contracts set aside for the program. You can still compete for contract awards under other socio-economic programs you qualify for.

To be eligible for the women’s contracting program, your business must:

                       -Be a small business

                       -Be at least 51% owned and controlled by women who are U.S. Citizens

                       -Have women manage day-to-day operations and also make long-term decisions 

When: Friday, January 25 from 9:30AM - 11:30AM

Where:  Center for Women and Enterprise
