SCORE Austin, Chapter 249 

Women-Owned Small Business Certification

This workshop is shared by the Fort Worth Chapter of SCORE. To level the playing field in the federal marketplace for Women Owned and Economically Disadvantage Women Owned Small Business (WOSB/EDWOSB), the federal government has established a 5 percent goal. In FY18, the government awarded 4.75% or $22.5 billion dollars in federal contracts to WOSB/EDOWSB.  Women entrepreneurs left .25% of federal contracting opportunities on the table; that translates to $1.2 billion dollars. Learn more about this program and how you can take advantage of this opportunity.

 Speaker: Nancy N. Alvarez, Supervisor Business Opportunity Specialist with the SBA Dallas/Fort Worth District Office, will facilitate the workshop and will be available to answer specific questions on the certification eligibility and process. She serves as the Head of the 8(a) Business Development Program for the U.S. Small Business Administration, Dallas/Fort Worth District Office and is instrumental in providing leadership, management, and oversight to optimize the deployment of SBA’s Federal Contracting programs. As the SBA’s Women Ownership Business Representative, she is responsible for increasing participation of women owned small businesses in Federal Contracting Programs and advocates to local Federal agencies on behalf of Women Owned Small Businesses (WOSBs).
