ABSTRACT
The article provides insights on the U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) proposed changes to the certification criteria for Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) and economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSB). Under the SBA proposal, an alternative certification process eliminates continuous resubmission of certification documents, include WOSBs in programs that are subject to general determination proceedings for small businesses, and prohibits total assets of economically disadvantaged women from exceeding 3 million dollars.
