SBA Certifications: 8(a), HUBZone, and WOSB Informational Webinar
During this informational webinar, we review three of the certification programs within Federal contracting – the Woman-Owned Small Business Set-Aside Program, the HUBZone Program, and the 8(a) Business Development Program. For all three programs, we discuss the eligibility criteria; the programmatic benefits for participants; and the process to pursue the certification.
8(a) Business Development Program is a business development program created to help small disadvantaged businesses compete in the American economy and access the federal procurement market.
Participants in the 8(a) business development program can receive sole source contracts up to $4 million for goods and services and $7 million for manufacturing.
The federal government has a goal of awarding 5% of all dollars for federal prime contracts to 8(a) firms.
SBA’s HUBZone Program helps small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities.
10% price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions, as well as subcontracting opportunities.
The federal government has a goal of awarding 3% of all dollars for federal prime contracts to HUBZone-certified small business concerns.
SBA’s WOSB Program is designed to help more women owned small businesses to win federal contracts by providing a level playing field for WOSBs to compete.
