Tyonek Native Corporation has a number of 8(a) subsidiaries. As an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC), Tyonek subsidiaries have special rights under the SBA 8(a) Program. ANC 8(a) firms are exempt from the competitive threshold. That means they are eligible to receive sole source 8(a) contracts regardless of dollar size, with no upper limit [13 CFR § 124.506(b); FAR 19.805-1(b)(2)]—and the award cannot be protested. (Other 8(a) firms may not receive sole source contracts in excess of $4 million for services and $7 million for manufacturing.) Additionally, DoD sole source contract awards to an ANC up to $100M do not require a FAR Part 6 sole source justification and approval.

Here are reasons to consider a sole source award to Tyonek:

·         Encouraged by FAR and DFARS [FAR 19.800(e); DFARS 219.803(2)]

·         No requirement for competition [FAR 6.302-5(b)(4)]

·         No requirement for synopsis [FAR 5.202(a)(4)]

·         Cannot be protested [13 CFR 124.517(a)]

·         DoD contract up to $100M: No sole source justification [2020 NDAA Section 823]

·         Non-DoD contract up to $22M: No sole source justification [FAR 6.302-5(c)(2)(i)]

·         Contract value counts toward agency’s SBA small business and 8(a) contracting goals

·         Low risk through FAR compliance and DCAA audit oversight

·         Streamlined, transparent, accountable process that supports immediate warfighter needs
