Proposed SBA Rule to Open Up Federal Contracts for WBOs

ana-harvery-lg.jpg Hot off the press!  The SBA has proposed a rule that (if passed) could open up federal contracting opportunities for women-owned businesses in dozens of industry categories. Listen in as I interview Ana Harvey, director of the SBA's Office of Women's Business Ownership. We cover:

  • What federal contracting opportunities mean for women-owned businesses
  • What the proposed rule is meant to redress
  • Approaches to getting certified as a women-owned business
  • Other goals of the Obama administration for women-owned businesses

Commenting on the proposed rule is open to the public until May 3, so if you want to weigh in, now's your time at (Type the keywords "Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Program"; should be the first entry in the list.)

Listen in!! 

You'll also hear our references to NAICS industry codes and WBENC. Here are relevant sites so you can learn more:
