DynaGrace Enterprises Receives USWCC EDWOSB Certification
DynaGrace Enterprises has received Certification from the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce as an Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB). Under Margot Dorfman’s leadership, the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce is an approved 3rd Party Certifier for the federal government Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) program.
Under Margot Dorfman’s leadership, the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce is an approved 3rd Party Certifier for the federal government Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Program as authorized by section 811 of the Small Business Reauthorization Act of 2000, Public Law 106-554 (15 U.S. C. 637(m)).
The USWCC is the leading advocate for women on economic and leadership issues. As the economic leader for women, the USWCC creates opportunities, drives progress, advocates, and provides tools and solutions to support the economic growth of women across America. The USWCC, is a not-for-profit 501(c)6 organization founded in 2001 with over 500,000 members; its headquarters are in Washington, D.C.
DynaGrace Enterprises was a self-certified, EDWOSB with the Small Business Administration (SBA) but chose to obtain additional certification to support the USWCC. The USWCC are bringing three significant issues to the forefront for EDWOSB’s performing government work. Those issues are 1) Adding a sole source in alignment with other socioeconomic programs, 2) removing the Contracting Officer’s obligation to verify the validity of self-certification, and 3) holding agency leaders accountable for using the program.
“It is a great privilege to be not only a rural business, but a women-owned, family business, and we are excited to utilize programs like the USWCC EDWOSB program to obtain more work to provide jobs,” stated Linda Rawson, President, and CEO of DynaGrace Enterprises. “DynaGrace Enterprises has been heavily involved in Department of Defense work and is moving full forward in obtaining more government contracts. The government is providing the mechanism, socioeconomic set-asides, additional insight, and resources needed to acquire government contracts which in turn provide jobs. The EDWOSB opportunity is a win-win for our small business.”
Groups, like the USWCC, are making a difference. In fact, it was their lawsuit that compelled the SBA to implement the Equity in Contracting for Women Act of 2000. With the failure of the federal government to meet the 5% goal, women-owned firms have lost over $120 Billion in contracting dollars.
As of today, the Small Business Dashboard, shows 4.08% which is one percent lower than the required spend of 5%. With four months to go in the fiscal year, the government is in the final stretch and anticipated WOSB set-asides should increase.
DynaGrace Enterprises is a 100% Women-Owned Small Business and provides Information Technology, System Integration, Writing and Business services, quality products and innovative solutions for government and commercial businesses of all sizes.
