Federal government agencies have statutory goals for contracting with small businesses including businesses located in historically underutilized business zones (HUBZone), woman-owned, disadvantaged, and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses. SBA’s presentation will cover each of these certifications including eligibility requirements, benefits and how to get certified.
