SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION (SBA) CERTIFICATIONS
This certification helps provide a level playing field for small businesses owned by socially and economically disadvantaged people or entities. The government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the 8(a) Business Development program.
Disadvantaged businesses in the 8(a) Program can:
- Compete for set-aside and sole-source contracts in the program
- Get a Business Opportunity Specialist to help navigate federal contracting
- Form joint ventures with established businesses through the SBA’s Mentor-Protégé Program
- Receive management and technical assistance, including business training, counseling, marketing assistance, and high-level executive development
INCATech has been an SBA certified participant in the SBA 8(a) program since 2011. Please contact us to see how this program can benefit your organization or contract.
Woman Owned Small Business WOSB Certification
INCATech has successfully completed rigorous third-party certification by the US Woman’s Chamber of Commerce (USWCC) as a Woman Owned Small Business. SBA is no longer allowing companies to self-certify due to the high level of fraudulent self-certifications being found in the marketplace. The SBA has recognized the USWCC as an official certifying body and recognizes all companies with a USWCC certification as also being SBA certified.
Economically Disadvantaged Woman Owned Small Business (EDWOSB)
INCATech has successfully completed rigorous third-party certification by the US Woman’s Chamber of Commerce (USWCC) as an Economically Disadvantaged Woman Owned Small Business. Like the WOSB certification, this EDWOSB certification is formally recognized by the SBA.
All three of the above socioeconomic groups are offered both prime contracting “set-aside” opportunities as well as represent significant small business subcontracting requirements on large full and open procurements. Please contact us to see how we can provide value added discriminators or lead set aside opportunities for your company or agency.
