Just a day after announcing that the 5% contracting goal to women-owned small businesses (WOSBs) was met for the first time, the Small Business Administration (SBA) has expanded the industries in the WOSB Federal Contract Program. Using the results of a study conducted by the Department of Commerce, the SBA has found a total of 113 industry groups eligible for Federal contracting under the WOSB Program. WOSBs will now be eligible for 92 NAICS industry groups. EDWOSBs will now be eligible for contract participation in an additional 21 designated NAICS industry groups in addition to the 92 NAICS industry groups identified for WOSBs. The expansion of the Program is effective today.
