    Discover the Benefits of SBA Certification Programs

    3:00pm - 5:00pm:

    Did you know…

    - You can self-certify for certain SBA Programs.

    - These certifications enable you to gain additional access to sell your products and services to government entities.

    - Every year, the federal government purchases approximately $400 billion in goods and services from the private sector.

    - A set-aside is based, in part, on the value of the goods or services that the government is looking to purchase.

    - The current, government-wide procurement goal stipulates that at least 23% of all federal government contracting dollars should be awarded to small businesses.

    8(a) Business Development Program—The 8(a) Business Development Program is a nine-year program established to assist eligible socially and economically disadvantaged individuals to start, grow and succeed in their business ventures. Business development assistance includes one-on-one counseling, training, workshops and other management and technical guidance. All firms deemed eligible for SBA’s 8(a) business development assistance are also considered small disadvantaged business concerns for federal contracting purposes.

    HUBZone—The HUBZone program helps small businesses located in economically distressed urban and rural communities, known as Historically Underutilized Business Zones, gain access to federal set-aside and sole-source contracts, as well as price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions.

    Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB)—The WOSB Federal Contract Program authorizes contracting officers to set aside certain federal contracts for eligible women-owned small businesses and economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses.
