World’s biggest customer seeks W.O.B.s

This is your chance to learn how you can tap into the $27 billion in government contracts that are set aside to award to women-owned businesses. Mark your calendars for May 25 and register for the FREE American Express OPEN and Women Impacting Public Policy Webinar.

On the agenda:

• 4 required steps to compete for a WOSB contract

• How to grant the contracting officer access to your certification in the repository

• WOSB review and protest issues

Touted as the world’s largest customer, the U.S. government is obligated to look to women business owners as vendors. It’s the result of the SBA’s Women Owned Small Business Program (WOSB) legislation that went into effect on February 4.
