Atlanta, GA--  (Submitted by James Hightower)

--Workshops will show how to Self Certify as a WOSB-- 

A SBA workshop will be held on Jan. 13, 2011 to give an overview of the agency’s Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Program and how a company can self-certify as a WOSB.  The workshop is being held at the agency’s state office in the downtown Peachtree Center office complex, adjacent to the MARTA Peachtree Center station.  

The free workshops will run from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and be held at the SBA Georgia District Office, 233 Peachtree Street N.E., Harris Tower-Suite 1900, Atlanta, GA 30303.

The SBA, on October 7, 2010, published a final ruling on the “Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Assistance Procedures.” The Small Business Act authorizes federal contracting officers to specifically set-aside certain requirements for competition solely among women owned small businesses (WOSBs) or economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSBs). These procurement mechanisms are meant to increase federal contracting opportunities for WOSBs and to assist agencies in achieving their women-owned small business goals.

Other topics to be covered at the workshop:

  • How do I self-certify my status as an EDWOSB?
  • What documents must I submit to the WOSB Program repository?
  • How long can my company participate in the WOSB Program?
  • What are the NAICS Codes under the program?

This SBA workshop is part of the WNET Roundtable (Women’s Network for Entrepreneurial Training) Initiative. The WNET Roundtable offers access to public and private sector individuals who can provide a unique array of contacts and services to help women-owned businesses.
