A streamlined 8(a) application process will be launched on November 15th, 2017 in certify.sba.gov which incorporates many of the former forms into online questionnaires. The new system will walk users through which forms need to be uploaded. Applicants will need to have registered in SAM.gov. Currently certify.sba.gov allows Women Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) and Economically Disadvantaged Women Owned Small Businesses (EDWOSB) to more easily manage eligibility documents for the WOSB certification program. The HUBZone certification process is scheduled to be added in 2018. Contact Benjamin Blanc at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance on this new portal.
