WOSB/EDWOSB (Full Service) Package

Our WOSB or EDWOSB Full Service Package is our most popular woman owned small business service. Women business owners who select this package are gaining access to subject matter experts that will simplify their involvement in the process of generating and reviewing their WOSB Application. This gives the business owner back the lengthy amount of time to spend growing their business rather than focusing on a one-time application.
In advance of a purchase decision we advise that you call us, and we will perform a detailed assessment of your business and make sure that you meet the structural requirements to obtain this certification. The time requirement for us to prepare and assemble your WOSB or EDWOSB application varies by client, but most take an average of two weeks. The SBA’s normal turnaround time for a well put together application package is 2-3 months (on ez8a WOSB client packages). For business planning purposes a good time estimate for the award is 4 months.

WOSB / EDWOSB – What we do!

  • Providing you with a detailed document checklist as well as templates for any/all documents the client does not have in place.
  • Explaining and work through all elements of your application including affiliation, control and economic guidelines.
  • Performing a review, update or completing your firms sam.gov registration.
  • Reviewing your financial documents and statements to identify and remedy or potential issues. Note: The SBA is very detailed in their assessment of all financial documents and therefore this is a highly technical and critical step.
  • Assembly of your application and triple-checking all phases of the application to ensure the application meets SBA guidelines.
  • Submitting the application on the GLS website.

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.

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.
