SBA Issues New Regulations for Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contracting Program
 
 
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Small Business Administration today published Women-Owned Small Business  Federal Contracting program regulations that will provide a free, online certification and eligibility application process for women-owned small businesses and economically-disadvantaged women-owned small businesses. The timeline for implementation of changes to SBA’s WOSB program has been delayed to accommodate those affected by the current pandemic.  
 
Starting July 15, 2020, SBA will begin to implement changes consistent with the Small Business Act as amended in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015. In addition to the certification requirement for firms seeking WOSB and EDWOSB set-aside contracts, the regulations detail certification options for applicants and require authorized third-party certifiers to notify applicants of their fees and the option to use SBA’s free online certification process.
 
 
 
Below are some important timelines for firms to keep in mind:
 
    The current self-certification process will remain available for firms until October 15, 2020, in sba.gov;
    Between now and July 15, 2020, WOSBs must download their documentation, currently housed in the WOSB Program Repository, from sba.gov;
    On July 15, 2020, firms can begin submitting applications for initial processing; and
    On October 15, 2020, SBA will begin issuing decisions on certification.
 
The regulations detail important changes to the certification process, including the following:
 
    Allows participation from firms certified by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Center of Verification and Evaluations, provided they meet all eligibility requirements;
    Confirms the continued participation of approved third-party certifiers;
 
    Eliminates the self-certification option from sba.gov, effective October 15, 2020; and
    Adopts a $750,000 net worth standard when assessing economic disadvantage for individuals in the 8(a) Business Development Program (8(a) Program). Additionally, funds invested in official retirement accounts are excluded from the analysis of an economically-disadvantaged individual’s personal net worth in both the WOSB and 8(a) Programs. This makes the economic disadvantage threshold and analysis consistent for EDWOSBs and 8(a) Program participants.
 
 
 
The new WOSB Program regulations will make it easier and more efficient for contracting officers to set aside and make awards to firms certified as WOSBs and EDWOSBs and will better empower agencies to meet the 5% federal contracting goal for women-owned small businesses.

>>>America is running out of supplies
The government’s emergency stockpile of medical supplies is nearly depleted because of the coronavirus outbreak, President Trump confirmed. There's a real risk of hospitals running out: States have been left to source equipment on their own amid bidding wars and price gouging. The administration is working with private companies to get gear, but so far, it has only gone to the hotspots. The Washington Post

COVER YOUR FACE!

Los Angeles officials urged residents to cover their faces in public to prevent further transmission of COVID-19.

LA GRAND EXPERIMENT

As more Americans file for unemployment benefits, an experiment in France is gaining attention: The government is paying businesses not to layoff employees. The aim is to keep companies afloat and prevent mass joblessness — potentially giving the economy a head start when things reopen.
