All America Transportation, Inc. Becomes SBA Certified EDWOSB
All America Transportation, Inc. is proud to announce they are now certified by the SBA as an EDWOSB. The SBA implemented two new certifications in February 2011, WOSB (Woman-Owned Small Business) and EDWOSB (Economically Disadvantaged Woman-Owned Small Business).
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.
Program administrator Karen Mills said, “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.”
