Tshimakain Creek Laboratories welcomes the opportunity to team up with Federal, State, and Local Governments, as well as private companies, for subcontracting and procurement opportunities.
We are certified as a SBA 8(a)/SDB small business company. Working with a tribal-owned 8(a) provides a whole host of business advantages, such as minority contracting preferences and opportunities, while avoiding many of the restrictions applicable to other SBA 8(a)/SDBs
The 8(a) Program
The 8(a) Program is a United States Small Business Administration program intended to provide assistance to economically and/or socially disadvantaged businesses, including tribal-owned businesses.
The initiative, which originated out of Section 8(a) of the Small Business Act, provides participants with access to a variety of business development services, including the opportunity to receive federal contracts on a sole-source or limited competition basis.
Tribal 8(a) Advantages
Native American tribes are granted special procurement rights which recognize that proceeds from tribal-owned companies are used for the benefit of the entire tribal membership, rather than individual owners. Unlike individual owners, tribes use these proceeds to build, sustain, and operate their communities for things such as education, law enforcement, health care, public works, etc.
A tribal-owned 8(a) may receive sole-source contracts regardless of the dollar amount. Compared to other 8(a)s, a tribal-owned 8(a) can receive sole-source contracts in excess of $3 million. Also, protests by other contractors are not allowed with respect to a tribal-owned company in connection with such sole-source contracts.
Moreover, Department of Defense primary contractors who utilize tribal-owned enterprises as subcontractors are eligible for a 5% rebate of the amount that was subcontracted.
