The goal of the SBA Women Owned Small Business Federal Contracting Program (WOSB) is to provide greater access to federal contracting opportunities for WOSBs and economically-disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSBs). The Program allows contracting officers to set aside specific contracts for certified WOSBs and EDWOSBs and will help federal agencies achieve the existing statutory goal of five percent of federal contracting dollars being awarded to WOSBs.


WOSB Program requirements are now managed through  

All WOSB Program participants are required to create a new user account to manage their WOSB or EDWOSB profiles and supporting documentation for self or third party certifications. After creating a new user account, SBA is requesting that businesses update their records by completing the WOSB Program certification forms online.
