Congress has mandated since 2000, a budgetary goal of 5% of all government prime contracting dollars to women-owned small business (approximately $15–20 billion dollars). Additionally, in February of 2011 the SBA determined there are 83 (4-digit) NAICS Codes (What is a NAICS Code?) where women are significantly underrepresented. To aid women in making inroads into these industries, the SBA has allowed for set-aside contracts to be issued in these NAICS Codes. The NAICS Codes with the least number of women-owned firms require the WOSB certification for the firm to be awarded set-aside contracts. The NAICS Codes where some women-owned firms existed but were still underrepresented require the EDWOSB or Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business. A firm holding EDWOSB certification can bid on both WOSB and EDWOSB set-aside contracts where a firm holding a WOSB certification can only bid on WOSB set-aside contracts.

4 – Digit Designated NAICS Codes 92 21
6 – Digit Designated NAICS Codes 365 80

As of July 15th the WOSB / EDWOSB certification process will no longer be self-certify. The result will be that firms must go through a more rigorous approval process.
