Contracting Officers now have the ability to perform Sole Source acquisitions with a Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) that provide a fast path, streamlined, and shortened time frame to produce services based on FAR 19.1506. Under FAR 19.1506:

  1. A contracting officer shall consider a contract award to a WOSB concern (including EDWOSB concerns) eligible under the WOSB Program on a sole source basis (see 6.302-5(b)(7)) before considering small business set-asides (see 19.203 and subpart 19.5) provided none of the exclusions at 19.1504 apply, and
  1. The acquisition is assigned a NAICS code in which SBA has determined that WOSB concerns are substantially underrepresented in Federal procurement;
  2. The contracting officer does not have a reasonable expectation that offers would be received from two or more WOSB concerns (including EDWOSB concerns); and
  3. The conditions in paragraph (c) of this section exist.
  1. 1. The anticipated award price of the contract, including options, will not exceed-
  1. $7 million for a requirement within the NAICS codes for manufacturing; or
  2. $4.5 million for a requirement within any other NAICS codes.
  1. The EDWOSB concern or WOSB concern has been determined to be a responsible contractor with respect to performance.
  2. The award can be made at a fair and reasonable price.
  1. The SBA has the right to appeal the contracting officer’s decision not to make a sole source award to either an EDWOSB concern or WOSB concern eligible under the WOSB program.
