How to Sole Source
When deciding how to meet your IT program requirements, several variables need to be prioritized to ensure project schedule, budget, and acquisition process success. As a Federally Recognized Alaskan Tribal 8(a) entity by the Small Business Administration, Copper River can offer our customers several benefits to streamline the acquisition process.
One of the biggest advantages to this designation that it allows the federal government to award contracts to tribal owned 8(a) companies on a sole-source basis without regard to contract value [13 CFR 124.506(b)]. Additionally, protests by other contractors are not allowed. This eliminates the time consuming process of RFP development, waiting for contractor responses, evaluating all submissions, and mitigates potential protests.
