Your voice is needed to help create a strong women’s contracting program.

The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce is urging women to submit comments. “With some refinement, [the proposed regulations] will serve to implement a strong program enabling restricted competition for certain women-owned small business on contracts within selected NAICS codes.  This program should help the federal government to meet their mandate for providing a fair portion of Federal contracts to women-owned small businesses,” says Margot Dorfman, USWCC CEO.

To learn more about the program, read the proposed rule and submit comments, visit the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce site.
