40 Percent of Women-Owned Small Business Contracts Awarded to Ineligible Firms
The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce announced today a critical challenge to the President, Small Business Administration (SBA) and Congress to act immediately to bring real accountability in contracting to women-owned and all small business federal contracting programs.
This call to action follows the publishing a long awaited Government Accountability Office report, released on November 17, 2014, on accountability in the SBA oversight of the women-owned small business federal contracting program. The GAO report, provided to Senators Maria Cantwell and Mary Landrieu, Chair and Former Chair of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, details systemic and costly failures by the SBA in the oversight of the women-owned small business set-aside program and of socioeconomic programs across the entire federal marketplace.
