Chasing Small Business Certifications

NOTE: The Alaska PTAC has been renamed as Alaska APEX Accelerator. This change occurred on September 15, 2023. Learn why.

Although entering the federal contracting arena can be challenging, there is opportunity for small businesses. Solicitations under the Simplified Acquisition Procedures (SAP) threshold are set-aside for small businesses reducing the competitive pool. But how do you know if your business qualifies as “small”? To add to the confusion, there are additional sub-categories under the small business umbrella: 8(a) Business Development Program, HUBZone, WOSB/EDWOSB or SDVOSB.

This is helpful information, but how do you apply it? What do these acronyms mean? Where do you begin? Well, this webinar is a great place to start! This webinar will review each of the small business set-aside programs focusing on:
Program eligibility requirements Electronic application processes
Approval pitfalls and timelines

The webinar will end with a brief discussion on other state and commercial small business certification programs.
