Small Business Certifications for Federal, State & Local Government Contracts

Wednesday, June 15 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am • Organized By Missouri PTAC
Online Event

About

This virtual seminar is an overview of the current small business socio-economic certifications in federal, local state and city government. The federal government spends over $500 billion in goods and services each year, and 23% of this spend is set aside for small businesses. With state and local activity, there are established goals to spend a certain percentage of a contract with women and minority owned businesses.

We will cover the purpose, eligibility rules, recent updates, benefits of certification and a summarize the application process for the following certifications:

  • Federal: 8a, HUBZone, Woman-owned Small Business (WOSB/EDWOSB) and Veteran-owned Small Business (VOSB/SDVOSB)
  • Department of Transportation: Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)
  • State/Local: Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) and Service Disabled Veteran Enterprise (SDVE)
