What is ANC Sole Source Contracting?
As an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC), Chenega Applied Solutions (CAS) offers a unique, agile, flexible, and streamlined sole source procurement option to Federal customers. As an SBA-certified 8 (a) subsidiary of the Chenega Corporation, sole source contracting withing CAS provides Federal customers with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) provisioned acquisition methods to maximize current contract performance, flexibility, continuity, scope, and small business goals.
What does an Accelerated Timeline Look Like?
Sole source procurement can be completed in weeks, and provides Federal customers with immediate contract workforce retention and work continuation. Open discussions of scope and work-share can occur throughout the procurement process immediately following SBA approval. CAS can provide our customers insight and decades of contracting expertise to help tailor pre-award requirements – achieving the highest quality post-award outcomes.
What are the Advantages of Sole Source Contracting with an ANC?
- An accelerated procurement timeline, without disruptions and delays resulting from complex evaluations and potential protests.
- Flexibility and reliability through direct negotiations (13 CFR 124.503) allows CAS to to truly understand customer mission goals and competitive threshold exemptions (48 CFR 19.805-1) allow for interrupted workflow.
- Pre-award schedule risk is no longer an issue due to the non-protestable nature of ANC sole source procurements (13 CFR 124.517)
- ANCs provide Federal customers with a virtually unlimited sole source ceiling for most service-based contract opportunities due to higher J&A than other small disadvantaged business groups (48 CFR 6.303-1)
