As an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC), AKHI has special 8(a) Advantages per the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971. We are able to provide Federal agencies with an efficient, federally approved means to fulfill mission requirements in an expeditious, cost effective manner. We capitalize on our knowledge and experience of the Ahtna Netiye family of companies to ensure we effectively and efficiently work with Government Contracting Officers (CO) to satisfy all their requirements and negotiate and enter into a FAR compliant contract. By virtue of our 8(a) status and our combined corporate resources, we can receive sole source awards, regardless of size and complexity, that can be secured and mobilized within as little as a few weeks. The benefit to the Government lies in the fact that they receive a fully competent and robust resource to meet their contracting needs and they are also able to claim 100% Small Business utilization for the program when contracting with AKHI.
AKHI Special ANC 8(a) Advantages include:
Rapid Procurement Process through Small Business Administration (SBA)
The SBA ANC 8(a) contracting method streamlines the acquisition process and avoids lengthy, expensive, and potentially complex procurement cycles. When using the ANC 8(a) contracting method, a Government representative can simply select AKHI as a suggested source and submit a request to the cognizant SBA representative, asking that the procurement be pursued under the official 8(a) program.
