What is the NWBOC?
NWBOC, the first national certifier of WBEs, provides national certification for women-owned and veteran-owned companies.
Certification ensures that a private, for-profit company such as Excal Industries is truly a plastic injection molding service that is owned and controlled by a woman.
The National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC) has led the way for women business owners to obtain WBE Certification. Created in 1995, NWBOC was established to increase competition for corporate and government contracts through implementation of a national certification program for women business owners. The development of the national Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) certification program, sponsored by IBM, involved cooperation and input from over 700 public and private sector individuals. The result was the creation of the WBE Application, the process, and the NWBOC Standards and Procedures.
NWBOC was created in response to needs identified by the Procurement Special Interest Group of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO.) The investigation revealed that to a large degree corporate America and government agencies had not received, nor recognized, the benefits of contracting with women suppliers. Only a small fraction of corporate and government contracts were with women-owned firms. This mindset prevented purchasers from obtaining the best value in their procurements, and it limited women business owners from penetrating these markets, which has stymied their business growth. Research has shown that after developing supplier partnerships with women-owned firms, many companies and government agencies have enhanced their bottom line for their shareholders, and taxpayers, respectively.
From the beginning, and continuing today, NWBOC seeks to provide corporations with the ability to improve their procurement practices and more women suppliers with the opportunity to compete. In addition to WBE Certification, NWBOC is also an approved Third Party Certifier for the U.S. Small Business Administration's Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) and Economically Disadvantaged Woman Owned Small Business (EDWOSB) contracting program. The Veteran Business Enterprise (VBE) and Veteran Woman Business Enterprise (VWBE) applicants will undergo the same rigid process for certification that NWBOC has had in place for women owned businesses since 1995.
