A contract with KOMAN Government 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.

 

1.

Speed and thrift
in awarding contracts.

The government’s Contracting Officers (C.O.) are faced with declining budgets and a growing backlog of contracts that those budgets are to support. Consequently, they require both speed and thrift in awarding contracts to qualified vendors. But, the cost of awarding a contract through competitive bidding can run into hundreds of thousands of dollars and take up to nine months to complete. By contrast, a single-source, Direct Award to an ANC 8(a) typically costs a fraction of that amount and often can be completed in 4-6 weeks.

2.

Ensuring competitive Overhead and
General & Administrative cost rates.

Because Alaska Native Corporations such as KGS are large enough and efficient enough to ensure competitive Overhead and General & Administrative cost rates, the C.O. risks little in that regard. And, by using the ALPHA Contracting model, the government and its contractor develop a transparent relationship wherein the C.O. is virtually guaranteed 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, can be an exceptionally cost-effective and operationally-efficient alternative to competitive acquisition.

3.

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

Direct Awards to ANC 8(a) participants such as KOMAN Government Solutions generally cannot be protested {13CFR124.517(a)}. Against the extended delays resulting from protests to hotly-contested awards, this advantage alone can save a Contracting Officer
many weeks of uncertainty before project start-up. Awards by U.S. Government activities or Prime Contractors to Alaska Native Corporations such as KGS 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 sub-contract with KGS helps a Contracting Officer or Prime Contractor meet its mandatory Small Business Utilization requirement.

Getting Started

If a solicitation has not been announced, a Contracting Officer can, through 13CFR124.506(b), contract directly with KGS. 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 Government 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.
