The WOSB Program Has Now Been Implemented Under the FAR

On April 1, 2011, DOD, GSA and NASA issued an interim rule designed to implement the Women-Owned Small Business Program (WOSB) under the government-wide Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) for all procurements covered under the FAR. 76 Fed. Reg. 18304 (April 1, 2011). This new rule creates FAR Subpart 19.15 which outlines the WOSB program and the procedures that a Contracting Officer (CO) must use for establishing restricted competitions for WOSBS, including Economically Disadvantaged WOSBs (EDWOSBs). The new rule reaffirms that the status of an EDWOSB or WOSB concern is determined in accordance with the SBA qualification requirements set forth under 13 CFR Part 127. Interested parties are invited to submit comments on the new interim rule up to May 31, 2011. However, the rule is effective immediately.

In accordance with the new rule, COs can now restrict competition for certain procurements to WOSBs and/or EDWOSBs. Specifically, for industries where there is underrepresentation of WOSBs, a procurement may be set-aside for EDWOSBs if the CO has a reasonable expectation based on market research that two or more EDWOSBs will submit offers. Furthermore, where there is substantial underrepresentation, the procurement may be set-aside for all WOSBs if the CO has a reasonable expectation based on market research that two or more WOSBs will submit offers. The industries where there is underrepresentation or substantial underrepresentation are specified on SBA’s web site at http:// www.sba.gov/WOSB. There are 83 eligible industries. According to the SBA, there are 45 NAICs codes in which WOSBs are underrepresented and 38 NAICs codes in which WOSBs are substantially under-represented. In addition, in order to restrict competition, the CO must reasonably expect that the anticipated award price will not exceed $4 million dollars including options, except that the price cap is $6.5 million for a contract assigned a manufacturing NAICs code.
