1-Year Extension of WOSB Program Recertification

On May 30, 2024, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Administrator issued a program update to firms participating in the Women Owned Small Business Federal Contract Program (WOSB Program).  The announcement provided SBA certified Woman-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) and Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Businesses (EDWOSB) an additional year of eligibility to those firms whose three-year certification renewal date occurs between June 1, 2024, and May 31, 2025.

This means WOSB Program participants whose renewal date is on or between June 1, 2024, and May 31, 2025, will not need to complete a three-year Renewal until June 1, 2025.

Firms that have already submitted a renewal application and their three-year expiration date on or between June 1, 2024, and May 31, 2025, these recertification application will be administratively removed by SBA.
