A contract with KOMAN Sustainable Solutions, LLC nets the government or a Prime Contractor the procurement benefit of best-value products, plus the contracting efficiencies and financial benefits of employing an Alaska Native Corporation SBA 8(a) participant.


Speed and thrift in awarding contracts.

The government’s Contracting Officers (CO) are faced with declining budgets and a growing backlog of contracts that those budgets are to support. A single-source, direct award to an ANC 8(a) costs a fraction of the amount of competitive bidding and is completed in less time – often 4-6 weeks.


Ensuring competitive Overhead and General & Administrative cost rates.

Because ANCs such as KOMAN Sustainable Solutions are efficient, we ensure competitive overhead and general & administrative cost rates. The CO has the ability to negotiate a fair and reasonable price with few of the uncertainties associated with the competitive bidding process.

The direct award process, properly executed, is a cost-effective and operationally-efficient alternative to competitive acquisition.


Small Business Utilization and Incentive Rebates of up to 5% of the total contract value

Direct Awards to ANC 8(a) participants such as KSS generally cannot be protested {13CFR124.517(a)}. This advantage saves a CO many weeks of uncertainty before project start-up. Awards by U.S. government activities or prime contractors to ANCs may be eligible for incentive rebates of up to 5% of the total contract value, under the Indian Incentive Program {FAR 26.1}. Also, a contract or subcontract with an ANC helps a CO and prime contractor meet its mandatory small business utilization requirements.


Getting Started

If a solicitation has not been announced, a CO can, through 13 CFR 124.506(b), contract directly with KSS. To get started, simply submit a letter to the Small Business Administration District Office in Anchorage, Alaska indicating an intent to offer a Direct/Single-Source Award to KOMAN Sustainable Solutions, LLC, under the SBA Section 8(a) Business Development Program.

This process enables our federal clients to easily negotiate contracts and address specific objectives, all at minimum cost and in minimum time.
