McCafferty Brinson Consulting, LLC is proud to announce our recent certification as a Federal Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business through the SBA WOSB Federal Contract Program. The February 2011 press release outlines the program as the following:
“‘Women-owned businesses are one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. As we continue to look to small businesses to grow, create jobs and lead America into the future, women-owned businesses will play a key role. That’s why providing them with all the tools necessary to compete for and win federal contracts is so important. Federal contracts can provide women-owned small businesses with the oxygen they need to take their business to the next level.’
The WOSB Federal Contract Program will provide greater access to federal contracting opportunities for WOSBs and economically-disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSBs). The Program allows contracting officers, for the first time, to set aside specific contracts for certified WOSBs and EDWOSBs and will help federal agencies achieve the existing statutory goal of five percent of federal contracting dollars being awarded to WOSBs.”
This certification status can be viewed at SBA’s Dynamic Small Business Search.
