1/7/2016 - 2016 HUBZone Recertifications

Happy New Year HUBZone Community!

HUBZone firms must recertify every 3 years.

SBA sends an email notification 30 calendar days prior to the firm’s 3rd anniversary date.  This allows a total of 60 calendar days to comply.  

The email notification is sent to the email displayed in the firm’s DSBS profile and contains a direct link to the Recertification process in the HUBZone Certification Tracking System (HCTS).  Or the user can login directly to HCTS via the General Login System (GLS) and then select the Recertification function.  The user needs the User ID and Password.  If the user forgot the User ID or Password, the user can click on the appropriate link to reset. 

If a firm does not complete its recertification within the timeframe established, it will have 30 calendar days to respond to a notice of proposed decertification.

It's important to check the email SPAM folder to make sure that emails from SBA are received.
