Effective immediately, the dollar limitations at FAR 19.1505(b)(2) and (c)(2) are no longer applicable to DoD solicitations and contracts. Contracting officers shall comply with all other requirements at FAR 19.1505.
The Small Business Administration (SBA) has revised 13 CFR 127, Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contract Program (SBA interim final rule, 78 FR 26504, May 7, 2013). This revision implements section 1697 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013, which removed the statutory dollar limitation for set-asides to economically disadvantaged women-owned small business (EDWOSB) concerns and WOSB concerns eligible under the WOSB Program.
This class deviation remains in effect until it is incorporated into the FAR.
