Does your EIN Number begin with a 0? When beginning your WOSB Application, you are asked to “Claim Your Business.” You are asked to enter your EIN number; however, if your number begins with a zero, the system does not recognize your number and rejects it. Please resubmit by omitting the zero, and you will be able to Claim your business and continue your application.

It’s important to be aware of the SBA’s new certification process for WOSB/EDWOSB. As of October 15, 2020, all new WOSB/EDWOSB set asides posted in this socio-economic category will only be awarded to firms who have officially applied for, and were approved by, the SBA on their new site, https://beta.certify.sba.gov/. If you are only self-certified in the old site, certify.sba.gov, you will not be qualified to bid on new set asides and still need to apply through the new site. If you are third party certified, you still need to apply on the new site and need to upload your 3rd party certifier certificate.
