10novate is a U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)-certified Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) and Economically Disadvantaged Woman-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB).
Section 825 of the FY15 National Defense Authorization Act provided agencies with statutory authority to award sole-source contracts to women-owned small businesses (WOSBs) through the WOSB Federal Contract Program.
An agency Contracting Officer may award a sole-source contract if four requirements are met:
1. The contract must be in a WOSB/EDWOSB eligible NAICS code.
2. The contract (including options) must be valued at $6.5 million or less for manufacturing contracts or $4 million or less for all other contracts.
3. The contract can be awarded to the WOSB/EDWOSB at a fair and reasonable price.
4. In the determination of the contracting officer, there is a reasonable expectation that only one WOSB/EDWOSB can perform the work.
