No More Dollar Limits on Federal Contract Set-Asides for Women-Owned Small Businesses
On June 21, 2013, the government issued an interim rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation ("FAR") to remove the dollar limits on contracts that may be set aside for Women-Owned Small Businesses ("WOSB") and Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Businesses ("EDWOSB"). The FAR rule conforms to a final rule issued by the U.S. Small Business Administration ("SBA") on May 7, 2013. This change should greatly increase the number and dollar value of contracts federal agencies set aside for WOSBs and EDWOSBs in the future.
