Getting Certified as a Women-Owned Small Business

Women Owned Small Business Certification Information Session

Join us to learn about the benefits and requirements for these federal & state certifications and how to get started.

Wednesday May 18th

8:30am-10am

Learn about the Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Program

SBA’s goal for the WOSB Federal Contracting program is to help the federal government achieve its goal of directing 5% of all federal contract dollars to women-owned small businesses each year. The program creates opportunities for women-owned businesses in specific industries where women have been underrepresented. Federal agencies can use this tool to limit competition to women-owned firms in these industries and this federal certification allows certified firms to compete for federal contracts set aside for the program. Find out if this certification is the right fit for your business, what the requirements are to qualify and how to apply.

Learn about Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program

Department of Transportation’s primary goal and objective of the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program is to level the playing field by providing small businesses owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals a fair opportunity to compete for federally funded transportation contracts. The DBE program ensures that only qualified small firms, owned and controlled by a socially and economically disadvantaged individual(s), are certified to participate as DBEs in DOT federally assisted programs. Learn about the opportunities available as a women-owned business certified as a DBE and how to qualify and apply.

Learn about the resources available to help you navigate these programs

NH Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) will give an overview of their programs and resources to assist businesses with the process of obtaining federal and state certifications and bidding on, and winning, government contracts.
