SBA seeks comments on WOSB certification process

By Chuck Schadl, on Georgia Tech PTAC’s Blog

The Small Business Administration (SBA) released an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) on Friday, December 18, 2015, which would change the certification process for the Women Owned Small Business (WOSB) Program.  Public comments on SBA’s new rules are due not later than February 16, 2016.


In the 2015 version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), Congress directed the SBA to end self-certification for WOSBs and EDWOSBs and take on a formal certification process.  Section 825 of the 2015 NDAA specifically authorizes certification by a federal agency, a State government, SBA, or a national certifying entity approved by SBA.  In the ANPR, the SBA is seeking comments on how to best implement this Congressional directive.  In essence, the SBA is requesting the public to suggest the most appropriate way to structure the WOSB/EDWOSB certification process before SBA engages in a formal rulemaking process.
