Simplify & Accelerate Mission Success
Alaska Native Corporations (ANC) have been granted special contracting opportunities under the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) for government contracts in general and for DoD contracts in particular. These include unique 8(a) rights, expedited A-76 authority, and bonuses for DoD contractors that subcontract with ANCs. However, to fully put these rights to work in order to aggressively attack the extreme poverty that exists in Alaska Native Villages, ANC-owned firms often need mentoring from large established government contracting firms that can help guide them through the intricacies of DoD contracting and provide technical support while the firms are building their in-house capability.
ANC 8(a)s can receive DoD Direct Awards up to $100M without a J&A (FY2020 NDAA Section 823) and $25 million for Federal Government agencies
ANC Direct Awards cannot be protested (13CFR124.517(a))
ANCs can negotiate directly with the Government through 8(a) Sole Source contracting (13CFR124.503(c)(2))
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) 2020 modification of Justification and Approval (J&A) Requirements for 8(a) Sole-Source Contracts (Sec. 823) loosens the J&A requirements for sole-source contracts awarded by DoD
Working with tribal and ANC firms to put these unique rights to work provides the DoD contractor with an opportunity to help reduce some of the worst poverty in this country, to meet its SDB goals, to make money, and help further legislative initiatives.
