Not sure which certification is right for your firm?

Below are a few recommendations:

  • Typically, during working hours, the USWCC Support Team is available via live chat to provide assistance, just look for the live chat interface at the bottom right side of your browser to begin a live chat session.
  • If your firm is seeking access to federal contracts, we recommend you begin with the WOSB or EDWOSB certification. Once you complete one of the federal certifications, you may also secure the NWBE and/or IWBE certification at no additional charge.
  • If you are unsure whether to pursue the WOSB or EDWOSB, consider the following: If your firm is eligible for the EDWOSB certification, we recommend you pursue the EDWOSB. While not all NAICS codes are eligible for EDWOSB set-asides, we do not know when the federal government may change eligible NAICS. In this event, your firm will already have the EDWOSB certification. If your firm is not eligible for the EDWOSB, then you should apply for the WOSB. The SBA Compliance Guide provides eligibility details for both the WOSB and EDWOSB certifications. And, we provide certification educational sessions frequently, check out our meetings/events page to register for an upcoming session.
