Leading Stories from Set-Aside Alert

WOSBs to get sole-source awards?
Push is on for ‘level playing field’

By Alice Lipowicz, Editor, Set-Aside Alert

    The effort to extend sole-source set-asides to the Small Business Administration’s program for women-owned small businesses is getting an extra boost with the support of the new SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet.

    “Another important tool for federal agencies is sole-source authority. I'm encouraging Congress to give federal agencies this tool to level the playing field for women-owned businesses,” Contreras-Sweet said at an event at the Center for American Progress on June 10.

    Her support is timely because the Senate soon will be considering a bill that allows registered participants in the SBA’s Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) program to receive sole-source contracts.
