Woman-Owned Small Business Certification

Woman-Owned Small Business Certification

Chesapeake, VA – On 15 March 2021, Apogee Solutions was certified as a Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), after previously being certified by U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce (USWCC).  This certification makes Apogee Solutions eligible for contracts through the SBA’s WOSB program.  The certification is effective for three years and Apogee Solutions must annually attest to meeting the WOSB eligibility requirements.

The SBA issued a final rule authorizing federal agencies to award sole-source contracts to WOSBs eligible for the WOSB Federal Contract Program, effective 14 October 2015.  The rule levels the playing field for WOSB across the federal contracting marketplace under the SBA’s 8(m) program identified in 13 C.F.R., part 127.  To become certified, a company must go through an in-depth review by the SBA.  The requirements focus on female ownership, high-level control, and management of daily operations.  The WOSB certification helps provide enhanced opportunity for women business owners; the government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the SBA’s 8(m) contracting program.

“This certification strengthens our relationships with our customers that value diversity and will lead to new opportunities,” commented President and CEO, Dasha E. Little.  “This certification will provide many advantages for Apogee Solutions that will ultimately benefit our customers.  SBA WOSB certification is designed to help women-owned small businesses get easier access to resources they need to grow and succeed.  It lets them compete fairly for federal contracts and gain access to resources tailored to promoting women in business.  Also, an SBA WOSB certification unlocks opportunities for small businesses to invest in new areas and innovation.”
