SEC. 2. PROCUREMENT PROGRAM FOR WOMEN'S SMALL BUSINESS CONCERNS.

    Section 8 of the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 637) is amended by 
adding at the end the following new subsection:
    ``(m) Procurement Program for Women's Small Business Concerns.--
            ``(1) Definitions.--In this subsection, the following 
        definitions apply:
                    ``(A) Contracting officer.--The term `contracting

            ``(2) Authority to set aside contracts.--Notwithstanding 
        any other provision of law and in accordance with this 
        subsection, a contracting officer may set aside to be awarded 
        only to a small business concern owned and controlled by women 
        any contract for the procurement of goods or services by the 
        Federal Government, if--
                    ``(A) the concern is determined to be a responsible 
                contractor with respect to the performance of such 
                contract;

                        contracts;
                    ``(E) in the estimation of the contracting officer, 
                the contract award can be made at a fair and reasonable 
                price; and

                            ``(i) is certified as a small business 
                        concern owned and controlled by women by a 
                        Federal agency or by a State or local 
                        government; or
                            ``(ii) certifies to the contracting officer

                        challenge to the eligibility of a small 
                        business concern to receive assistance under 
                        this subsection (including a challenge, filed

                        veracity of a certification made or information 
                        provided to the Administration by a small 
                        business concern under paragraph (2)(F)); and
                            ``(ii) verification by the Administrator of 
                        the accuracy of any certification made or 
                        information provided to the Administration by a 
                        small business concern under paragraph (2)(F).
                    ``(B) Examinations.--The procedures established 
                under subparagraph (A) may provide for program 
                examinations (including random program examinations) by

                    ``(D) Penalties.--In addition to the penalties 
                described in section 16(d), any small business concern 
                that is determined by the Administrator to have 
                misrepresented the status of that concern as a small 
                business concern owned and controlled by women for 
                purposes of this subsection, shall be subject to--
                            ``(i) section 1001 of title 18, United
