Action Alert: Women Business Owners Need Sole Source Parity

Posted By WIPP Advocacy Team, Wednesday, May 15, 2019
Updated: Thursday, May 23, 2019

WIPP strongly supported Expanding Contracting Opportunities for Small Businesses Act of 2019 (H.R. 190), which will give all small businesses greater opportunities through sole source contracting. Women business owners have the chance to affect this action in the Senate. But we need your help.

 

Now is your chance to get involved in our advocacy efforts. Please meet, call, or write your Senators to urge them to introduce a bill that mirrors H.R. 190 and open doors for women business owners.

 

Need more background?

WIPP fought and won sole source authority for the WOSB program in 2015—gaining parity with other federal contracting programs. While the fight has changed in 2019, the drumbeat is the same: parity.

Currently, the sole source dollar limits are $4 million and $6.5 million (construction and manufacturing) over the life of the contract. For government contractors, these amounts are small.

WIPP supported the H.R. 190, which passed the House and will give all small businesses including WOSBs greater opportunities through sole source contracting. The bill would raise the dollar amount for construction and manufacturing to $7 million and allow the amounts of $4 million and $7 million to be awarded each year, instead of over the life of the contract.

Please help us amplify this message by meeting, calling, and/or writing your Senators to urge them to introduce a bill that mirrors H.R. 190 and open doors for women business owners.
