WIPP works to ensure that federal buyers fully utilize the WOSB program and that women-owned businesses seeking federal contracts take advantage of these opportunities. Through its education programs, outreach through the ChallengeHER program and advocacy, WIPP opens doors for women owned businesses seeking to access the federal marketplace.


In 2017, WIPP is focusing on two major priorities. First, we must increase access for women-owned firms to multiple-award contracts. The government increasingly buys its products/services through these ongoing contracts, like Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts, and other large contracts. We will be asking for parity for WOSBs on these types of contracts.


Second, women must have adequate access to capital in order to start up federal contracts.  The sad truth is that only 4% of all commercial loan dollars and only 2.7% of all venture capital funds go to women businesses.  As the new administration works their way through updating the Frank-Dodd act, WIPP will be there making sure that women businesses are a part of the conversation and solution.

This is a study conducted by WIPP that identifies disparity that keeps women-owned firms out of the upper tiers of the federal contracting world.  This study resulted in the passing of S.1038, introduced by Sen. Joni Ernst, requiring the Small Business Administration (SBA) to report to specified congressional committees on determinations as to:

  • whether small business concerns and each category of covered small business concerns (specified below) are being utilized in a significant portion of the federal market on multiple award contracts, including whether awards are being reserved for one or more of those categories and whether each such category is being given the opportunity to perform on such contracts; and
  • whether current performance requirements for such contracts are feasible and appropriate for small business concerns.
