Women's Business Enterprise Certifications

Beverly Salhanick, Esquire, P.C. is one of the few law firms in Las Vegas assisting women in obtaining certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) and Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB). WBE and WOSB Certification denotes that a woman (or women) are majority owners and in control of a business entity.

What is WBE certification?

WBE certification assists women owned businesses in bidding and landing contracts with major corporations as well as state and federal governments who are seeking to diversify their ranks of vendors. Many large corporations now understand that it makes good business sense to spend dollars with women-owned vendor firms. Corporate management knows it is good for the public relations and for their local communities, but most importantly for the value they get from the dollars spent with women-owned companies. Virtually all corporations accept third-party woman business enterprise certification, meaning that the corporation does not perform the application and review process. Instead, they rely on third-parties or state programs, to provide that service.

Women-owned businesses can also seek certification under WOSB which allows these businesses to seek set aside federal contracts with funds for Women-owned vendors.

What is WSOB certification?

The SBA's WOSB Federal Contract Program provides greater access to federal contracting opportunities for WOSBs and economically-disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSBs). The Program allows federal contracting officers, for the first time, to set aside specific contracts for certified WOSBs and EDWOSBs and will help federal agencies achieve the existing statutory goal of five percent of federal contracting dollars being awarded to WOSBs.

Beverly Salhanick, Esquire, P.C. does not, at this time, assist in obtaining EDWOSB certification.
