Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Program
Interim final rule; request for comments.
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is requesting comments on an interim final rule amending its Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contract Program. The SBA proposes to change its regulations to make them consistent with the inflationary adjustments that are already codified in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) as they relate to the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Program and the Simplified Acquisition Threshold. In addition, the SBA is amending its regulations pertaining to the WOSB Program protest procedures so that they are consistent with the protest procedures for SBA’s other government contracting programs. This rule is effective on January 12, 2012; comments must be received on or before February 13, 2012.
