The U.S. Small Business Administration came through for women in small business this past Friday by opening up a program called the Women’s Procurement Program which set aside $30 billion dollars in federal funds to be available specifically for women owned small business contracts. This is a big opportunity for women owned small businesses and to see if you meet the qualifications you first have to have a business that is mostly(at least 51%) owned and operated by a woman or women who are U.S. citizens. In addition you will want to check with the Small Business Administration to see if you meet the requirements to be categorized as “small business”. Visit the SBA website’s “Am I a Small Business?
” page in order to see if you meet the qualifications to be considered a small business. After that you can then register for a federal contract.
