Public Policy

The NAWBO Delaware Public Policy committee is working on these current issues facing our members:

  • State procurement supplier diversity initiatives per Executive Order #14;
  • The recently passed federal Small Business Act which authorizes contracting officers to specifically limit, or set aside, certain requirements for compensation solely amongst women-owned small businesses or economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses;
  • Impact of Healthcare Reform legislation on small business, specifically the onerous and burdensome 1099 tax reporting requirement starting 2012; and
  • Access to capital ... Especially at a time when lending is needed to boost the economy.
