Women-Owned Business Representation

REPRESENTATION FOR WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESSES

In 2017, the government awarded a record high $25.4 billion in federal contracts to women-owned businesses. However, that $25.4 billion accounts for only 5 percent of the $508.4 billion in federal contracts awarded that year (from USAspending.gov )

This increase in awards is just the tip of an iceberg containing benefits, capital grants, mentor/guidance programs, and thousands more resources specifically intended for women entrepreneurs.

WHAT IS A WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESS CERTIFICATION?

A women-owned small business (aka “WOB” or “WOSB”) certification allows women (and economically disadvantaged women owned businesses (EDWOSB)) to gain access to valuable resources designed to assist the WOSB in operating, growing and thriving.

WHO QUALIFIES AS A WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESS?

To qualify as a women-owned small business, or WOSB, your business must meet the following requirements:

  • Your company must qualify as a small business based on SBA small business size standards which are usually stated in terms of employee size and/or annual revenue, and vary depending on your industry code.
  • Your company must be 51 percent owned by women who are U.S. citizens.
  • Women must manage the operations on a daily basis.
  • Women must make long-term decisions for the company.
  • A woman who works full-time for the company during normal work hours must hold the highest officer position in the company.
