Get ED/WOSB Certified


Did you know that you can self-certify your Woman Owned Small Business into the EDWOSB or WOSB program? We've done the hard work of researching and compiling all the necessary documents. We've written the step-by-step guide. 

GCA has created a "Do-it-Yourself Certification Kit" to make it easy for you.
  • Win set-aside contracts worth up to $4 mill & $6.5 mill for manufact. (federal goal 5%)
  • Win subcontracting projects with large primes (subcontracting mandate 5%)
  • Equal the playing field with other programs such as HUBZone, SDVOSB & 8a
  • Future Mentor Protégé program for ED/WOSB
  • New, easier processes for contracting officers to award set-aside contracts to WOSBs
  • No term limit in the program. If you are a small business, you remain in the program
  • No long approval process. Instant certification the minute you submit your documents
  • No 2 year wait period. Start a new woman business today, get certified the next day
  • Approved 83 Industries - Qualification by NAICS codes
  • Rule of 2 for WOSB on 45 industries
