The WOSB Program became effective on February 4, 2011. Small businesses may now begin taking steps to participate in the Program. The WOSB rule in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), is going through the final review, and is expected to be issued by April. The goal is for WOSBs and EDWOSBs to be ready to compete for contracts awarded in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011, which is when the largest percent of small business contracts are awarded.
