The Army OSBP Women-Owned Small Business ProgramHelps to help provide a level playing field for women business owners. The government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the women’s contracting program for industries WOSB are underrepresented. Some contracts are restricted to economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSB). The SBA maintains a list of those eligible industries and their NAICS codes. Businesses can still compete for contract awards under the other socio-economic programs in which they qualify for.


Eligibility Requirements for WOSB Contracting Program:

  • Be a small business
  • Be at least 51% owned and controlled by women who are U.S. citizens
  • Have women manage day-to-day operations and also make long-term decisions

Eligibility Requirements for EDWOSB:
