On December 18, 2015, the SBA issued an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM), requesting comments on the four possible methods of certification permitted by the NDAA: federal agency, state government, SBA, and national certifying entities approved by SBA. The SBA is asking for comments on the following:
· Whether each of the methods should be pursued;
· Concerns of feasibility regarding any of the methods;
· Possibility of a grace period for those who have self-certified to obtain approved certification; and
· What should become of the current WOSB repository.
Please join us for an online chat with Sean Crean, Director, Office of Government Contracting (SBA) and Alison Moeller, General Counsel (SBA) for a live discussion and explanation on the questions and how you can be better prepared for responding.
