The U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) has updated the North American Industry Classification System (“NAICS”) codes authorized for use in the Women-Owned Small Business (“WOSB”) Federal Contract Program (“WOSB Program”). The update is being made to reflect the U.S. Office of Management and Budget’s NAICS revision for 2017, identified as NAICS 2017. NAICS 2017 created 21 new industries by reclassifying, combining, or splitting 29 NAICS 2012 industry codes. These changes would impact eight of the 2012 NAICS codes designated for use under the WOSB Program. The designations of industries contained in SBA’s notice of NAICS Code updates, apply to all solicitations issued on, or after, October 1, 2017. 82 Fed. Reg. 47277.
