Session Overview:

Small business certifications are like professional certifications–they document a special capability or status that will help you compete in the marketplace. Unlike permits and licenses, you do not need to obtain certifications to legally operate. However, in order to take advantage of business opportunities such as government contracts, you may need to obtain certain certifications. Women business owners should seek to leverage the opportunities available through the federal government to drive revenue growth. This workshop will guide you in doing just that.

Topics Covered:

  • woman-owned small business federal government contract set-asides
  • final WOSB ruling and impact and advantage
  • eligible NAICS codes
  • WOSB certification process
  • identifying contract opportunities
  • effectively responding to requests for government proposal
  • completing required registrations
  • computer lab will be available to begin the WOSB certification process or CCR regisration process
