The Alaska Native Advantage - The Most Accelerated Procurement Option


  • Alaska Native Corporations (ANCs) may be awarded sole-source contracts of any size. They are exempt from the 8(a)sole-source thresholds of $4 million for service contracts, and $7 million for manufacturing contracts (FAR 19.805-1)
  • ANC sole-source awards cannot be protested [CFR 124.517 (a)]
  • The ‘Head of Agency’ thresholds for native 8(a) contracts from $22-93 million is no longer at the head of agency level and can be delegated to a lower level within the agency
  • The approval threshold should NOT be seen as a barrier to awarding these contracts
  • ANCs may own multiple 8(a) companies [13 CFR 124.109 (c)(2)(iii)]
  • Small Business Administration defines all Alaska Native Corporations as Indian Tribes for purposes of eligibility for special programs (13 CFR 124)

Sole Source Contracting

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) Contracting Advantages


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))
