Women Owned Small Business Certification (WOSB)
WBE / WOSB Certifications
Why Would You Want To Be WOSB/WBE Certified?The question rather should be why would you not want to be WOSB/WBE certified? Many people besides the federal government trust and prefer to do business with certified businesses, so you are missing an opportunity to grow your business without having your WOSB/WBE Certification. In addition, the federal government is required to spend 23% of it's contracting dollars on small businesses. In 2017, 24% of the contracting budget was $272 BILLION dollars. If your business qualifies for a WOSB/WBE certification, you can benefit with an additional 5% on top of that. That’s an additional $ 61 BILLION in contract money that is set aside for businesses just like yours to take advantage of the incredible opportunity to see your business reach new heights that you never dreamed were possible! Every year, not all of the money set aside to be awarded to WOSB/WBE is claimed, so the opportunity awaits you. What are you waiting for?

We look forward to hearing from you and helping to make your dreams come true.
How Does Your Business Qualify?Obtaining a certification seems as though it should be an easy task. After all, claiming you are a woman-owned small business can’t be that difficult to prove, can it?

HOW DO YOU QUALIFY?You must be able to supply all of the necessary documentation to prove that you are indeed a Veteran and/or Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business. The Federal Government goes to great lengths to ensure that the contract jobs are truly going to real veterans or service-disabled veterans. The certification can certainly be completed by you; however it is extremely tedious and time-consuming and every line on each necessary form to be submitted must be completed accurately, or your certification will be delayed and placed back in the regular circulation of applications for certification to be reviewed again at a later undetermined date. In other words, your application goes to the bottom of the stack, until the information is submitted again and can make its way back to the top for review to obtain your certification. Here are the main requirements that are necessary for the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Certification:
- At least 51% directly owned by a service-disabled veteran.
- The service-disabled veteran must manage the day-to-day operations for the business.
- You must have a Department of Defense Form 214.

DescriptionHow Would a SDVOSB Certification help your business today? You have served your country and now it’s time for you to start the business you have always dreamed of having for yourself.

If you are a veteran, be sure your business has its SDVOSB Certification in place today, to make certain you are taking advantage of every opportunity available for your business. Our Registration Specialists are available to assist you with this registration process to ensure your business takes advantage of the opportunities awaiting you.
WHY WOULD YOU WANT AN 8(A) CERTIFICATION?The federal government is required to spend 23% of the budget, contracting with small businesses. In 2014, 23% of the contracting budget was $271 BILLION dollars. If you qualify for the 8(a) certification, you’re entitled to an additional 5% on top of that. That’s an additional $61 BILLION. The sad thing is that last year only 3.6% of the money set aside for 8(a) small disadvantaged business was awarded (nearly 17 billion went unawarded. Not only does an 8(a) certification entitle you to an additional $61 billion, it also can help grow your business privately. Many people like to give their business to small businesses as this promotes growth within the community. Being government certified proves this and can help you grow in the private sector as well.
DescriptionThe Federal Government needs to contract out a lot of its work. In fact, the U.S. Government is the single largest purchaser of services and goods in the world! The government is required to offer some of these opportunities to small business, and 3% of that is REQUIRED to go to small businesses that are located in Historically Underutilized Business Zones, or HUBZones. This totaled $7 Billion dollars last year and only reached 1.6 %, again leaving a shortage of allocated funds. HOW DO YOU QUALIFY? It sounds pretty easy- you just have to prove that you’re a small business located in a HUBZone. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as it sounds. In order to make sure that HUBZone businesses are receiving this money, the government asks for a lot of information which must be submitted correctly in order to certify you. All of this equals time – time you could have spent elsewhere. Main HUBZone requirements
- Principal office is located in a HUBZone
- 35% of employees live in a HUBZone
- Your business must be a small business for its primary NAICS code
