What are the SBA certifications?

SBA Certifications are official recognitions provided by the Small Business Administration. There are four main SBA Set-Aside Certifications which include:

    • Woman-Owned Small Business Certification (WOSB/EDWOSB)
      • 5% of all Federal funds annually are allocated to WOSB Certified businesses
    • Veteran-Owned Small Business Certification (VOSB/SDVOSB)
      • Bid on exclusive contracts set aside for VOSBs.
      • 3% of federal contracts designated for SDVOSB certified contractors.
    • HUBZone Certification
      • Businesses in historically underutilized business zones are given exclusive access to certain government contracts.
      • HUBZone certified businesses benefit from a 10% price evaluation preference in open contract competitions.
    • 8(a) Certification
      • 5% of all federal monetary spending is mandated to be allocated to Minority Owned Small Business certificate holders.
      • As an 8(a) certified business, you are visible to contracting officers as a small business and Minority certified, so the pool for set-aside contracts is smaller, which maximizes your ability to receive no bid contract under $25,000.
