What is a (ED)WOSB Set-Aside Contract?
The Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) set-aside was established to help level the playing field and create more opportunities for women entrepreneurs. Another women-owned set-aside is the Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB).
Businesses certified as EDWOSBs qualify for extra funding and may be selected in smaller set-aside solicitations. From the over $500 billion the government allocates for contracts every year, 5% is obligated for WOSBs and EDWOSBs.
A System for Award Management (SAM) registration is required to qualify for set-aside contracts. Start yours by clicking below.
