How to Qualify, Certify, and Maintain the Status of a Small Disadvantaged Business

It is the policy of the United States government to set aside a portion of its contracts for small and economically disadvantaged businesses. Businesses can qualify for these set-aside programs based on the company’s ownership, size, or geographic location. Specifically, there are set-aside programs for small businesses (SB), small disadvantaged businesses (SDB and 8(a) Program), veteran-owned small businesses (VOSB and SDVOSB), women-owned small businesses (WOSB and EDWOSB), and businesses located within historically underutilized geographical areas (HUBZone).

Qualifying, certifying, and operating as a small and/or economically disadvantaged business presents many opportunities that otherwise would be unavailable; but it also presents many hurdles. This presentation by Zach Jones walks through the basic requirements to qualify, certify, and maintain the status of a small and/or disadvantaged business. While an hour long program cannot possibly detail every requirement, Zach will guide participants through the major obstacles and common pitfalls that businesses face.

This presentation will guide current and aspiring entrepreneurs through the small and economically disadvantaged business opportunities open to qualifying business. The presenter will outline basic opportunities and the requirements that must be met to take advantage of these opportunities.

In this program, Zach Jones will discuss:

  • Small business standards
  • Size determinations
  • Ownership/affiliation issues
  • 8(a) program requirements
