Reports have shown that the small business set-aside contracts have decreased over the last couple of years. This is not a result of less contract opportunities. Rather, it is because the government has been trying to consolidate contracts by using IDIQ and governmentwide acquisition contracts (GWAC).

What does this mean for Women Owned Small Businesses (WOSB)?

Well, according to Federal News Network, although set-aside contracts are being consolidated, WOSB-specific contracts are on the rise. This is good news for WOSB contractors.

Federal News Network goes on to say that the best opportunities for WOSB fall under three areas: support services for the Defense Information Systems Agency, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Department of Health and Human Services.

What can a WOSB contractor do to find opportunities within the 3 agencies that are mentioned?
