Women-Owned Small Businesses
Since August 2011, INCATech has been an SBA certified 8(a) contractor as well as an Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Businesses (Both WOSB and EDWOSB)
The 8(a) Business Development Program is a business assistance program for small disadvantaged businesses. The 8(a) Program offers a broad scope of assistance to firms that are owned and controlled at least 51% by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.
The WOSB Federal Contract Program was implemented in February 2011 with the goal of expanding the number of industries where WOSB were able to compete for business with the federal government. This program enables Economically Disadvantaged WOSBs (EDWOSBs) to compete for federal contracts that are set-aside for EDWOSBs in industries where women-owned small businesses are underrepresented. It also allows set-asides for WOSBs in industries where women-owned small businesses are substantially underrepresented. SBA has designated two sets of industries according to North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). The link below will take you to the current list of NAICS codes designated for use under this program.
The SBA’s Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) Federal Contracting Program has matured significantly in the fairly recent past. For more details visit: www. sba.gov
