Government Contracts for Women-Owned Businesses


There are distinct advantages to owning a minority business, not the least of which is the ability to gain access to Federal grants and preferential contract bidding. While women make up a majority of the population in the United States, they are considered a minority with respect to business by the Federal government as well as by many state governments.

The U.S. government spends over $200 billion every year for goods and services. In 1999, contracts for services was the largest acquisition category at $78 billion. The government also spends money on supplies and equipment (35%); agriculture, transportation, communications, utilities, and finance (19%); construction (7%); and wholesale/retail (3%).
