Why an ANC?

Unlike other 8(a) companies, ANCs provide the Federal Government with a virtually unlimited sole source ceiling (per 48 CFR 6.303-1). The Federal Government may award a sole source contract to an ANC 8(a) company for up to $100M without a Justification and Approval (J&A), and more than $100M with a J&A, offering an unlimited threshold. The ceiling for a sole source contract award to other 8(a) companies is limited to $4.5M for non-manufacturing and $6.5M for manufacturing contracts.  

ANC 8(a) Sole Source Contracting 

As an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC), Goldbelt Integrated Logistics Services, LLC (GbILS) offers a unique, flexible, and streamlined sole source procurement option to the Federal Government. Available through all SBA certified 8(a) subsidiaries within Goldbelt, Inc.’s family of companies, sole source contracting with GbILS provides the Federal Government with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) provisioned methods to maximize performance, mission continuity, and small business contracting goal achievement. 

ANC 8(a) Sole Source Advantages 

  • Agile, flexible, and cost-effective contracting 
  • Significantly accelerated procurement timeline, without the disruptions and delays from complex source selection evaluations and/or potential protests.
    Measured in weeks rather than months, a sole source procurement provides the Federal Government with Goldbelt’s high-quality and CPARS-demonstrated performance six times faster than a standard procurement. 
  • Accuracy, flexibility, and reliability through open discussions prior to award (per 13 CFR 124.503).
    Since open discussions are authorized immediately following SBA approval, we can work directly with the Federal Government to ensure requirements and expectations are understood, tailored if necessary, and executed to the Federal Government’s intent—no post award surprises. 
  • Competitive threshold exemptions (per 48 CFR 19.805-1). 
  • Common management and administrative services among all Goldbelt, Inc. subsidiaries. 
  • Elimination of pre-award schedule risk due to the non-challengeable nature of ANC sole source procurements (per 13 CFR 124.517).
