What is ANC Sole Source Contracting?

As an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC), Chenega MIOS offers a unique, agile, flexible, and streamlined sole source procurement option to federal customers. As SBA-certified 8(a) entities under Chenega Corporation, our companies’ sole source contracting provides federal customers with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) provisioned acquisition methods to maximize current contract performance, continuity, and scope, and to achieve small business goals.

Implemented Flexibility

ANC sole source procurements provide federal customers with the advantage of agile and scalable contracting solutions. Following SBA approval, they allow for open discussions and direct negotiations. Additionally, ANCs can offer sole source procurements protected from protests.

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 workshare can occur throughout the procurement process immediately following SBA approval. The MIOS 8(a) companies provide our customers insight and decades of contracting expertise to help tailor pre-award requirements – achieving the highest quality post-award outcomes.
