8(a) Alaska Native Corporation
01 Our Primary Responsibility
Alaska Native Corporations (ANC) have the primary responsibility to promote economic development within their communities.
Congress gave ANCs unique rights in the Federal procurement process, which are now codified under the US Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These rights provide Federal Agencies and Federal Contractors with strong incentives to contract with ANC firms. These benefits include the ability to sole source contract awards to 8(a) firms, remove the risk of delay due to protest, and minimize solicitation timeframes. Cape Fox Corporation unites several Federal contracting subsidiaries to provide exceptional service in healthcare, information technology, emerging technologies, professional, and logistics support.
02 Teaming with Cape Fox FCG
Did you know the Government expects companies to team together? It is true. In the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) it defines a team in FAR Subpart 9.6 as “(1) Two or more companies form a partnership or joint venture to act as a potential prime contractor; or (2) A potential prime contractor agrees with one or more other companies to have them act as its subcontractors under a specified Government contract or acquisition program.” The Far goes on to say in Subpart 9.6 that, ““Contractor team arrangements may be desirable from both a Government and industry standpoint in order to enable the companies involved to complement each other’s unique capabilities; and offer the Government the best combination of performance, cost, and delivery for the system or product being acquired.” Cape Fox understands this distinction and delights to have the opportunity to Team with you.

The Benefits of Teaming with Cape Fox
| SMALL BUSINESS/SOCIOECONOMIC GOALS
Cape Fox FCG provides solutions for meeting small business goals and socioeconomic contracting requirements. Our subsidiaries are at various stages in the business development process, qualifying for multiple small business sizes and classifications. For our small business partners, we serve as a “similarly situated entity” under the Small Business Administration regulation.
The Indian Finance Act (25 U.S.C. 1544) and FAR 52-226-1A allow for subcontract incentives. Prime contractors who subcontract to ANCs may receive additional compensation, above the value of the prime contract, for subcontracting with the Native American-owned entity.
| OPPORTUNITIES FOR NEW BUSINESS
Often, teaming with other industry leaders presents opportunities to extend support with current customers, gain access to new customers, and cross-utilize contract vehicles such as Government-wide Acquisition Contracts (GWAC). These opportunities may have been missed without the partnership.
