The 8(a) Business Development Program an essential instrument for helping socially and economically disadvantaged entrepreneurs gain access to the economic mainstream of American society and participate in the federal marketplace.  Established businesses that have at least two years of sales can gain access to set-aside requirements and unique sole-source authority.  The program helps thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs to gain a foothold in government contracting.

The HUBZone Empowerment Contracting Program seeks to encourage economic development in historically underutilized business zones, “HUBZones” through the establishment of set-aside requirements, limited sole source authority, and a unique competitive price preference.

The WOSB/EDWOSB set-aside contracting program began in February 2011 and was recently updated effective October 15, 2015 to include limited sole source authority.  To be eligible, a firm must be at least 51% owned, controlled, and managed by one or more women who are U.S. citizens.  In order for a WOSB to be deemed “economically disadvantaged,” its owners must demonstrate economic disadvantage in accordance with the requirements set forth in the final rule. These procurement mechanisms are meant to increase federal contracting opportunities and to assist entrepreneurs in linking up with federal contracts offering set asides.
