70% increase in eligible industries will expand contract opportunities for certified women owned businesses 

The U.S. Small Business Administration has published an updated list of eligible industries for the WOSB Federal Contracting Program (WOSB Program). Congress requires SBA to conduct a study every five years to identify industries in which small businesses owned and controlled by women are underrepresented in the federal marketplace.  Based on the recently commissioned study, the SBA is increasing the number of eligible industries from 444 to 759.
