As a Tribally Owned 8(a), we offer a unique, flexible, and streamlined sole source procurement option to our Government customers. Available through all SBA-certified 8(a) subsidiaries within the MODOC Tribal Enterprises (MTE) family of companies, sole source contracting with MTE companies provides the Government with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) provisioned methods to maximize performance flexibility, mission continuity, and small business goal achievement.

SBA 8(A) Program

Key Sole Source Advantages

  • A significantly accelerated procurement timeline, without the disruptions and delays resulting from complex evaluations and resulting protests.
  • Flexibility and reliability through direct negotiations per 13 CFR 124.503 and competitive threshold exemptions per 48 CFR 19.805-1.
  • Elimination of pre-award schedule risk due to the non-protestable nature of Native American sole source procurements per 13 CFR 124.517(a).
  • Tribal 8(a)s – unlike other 8(a) companies – provide the Government with a virtually unlimited sole source ceiling per 48 CFR 6.303-1.

Why use a Tribal 8(a) Company?

  • The ceiling for sole source contract awards to a non-Tribal 8(a) company is limited to $4M for non-manufacturing and $6.5M for manufacturing contracts.
  • The Government may award sole source contracts to Tribal 8(a) companies up to $22M without Justification and Approval (J&A) and more than $22M with J&A, offering an unlimited threshold per 13 CFR 124.506(b).

Accelerated Procurement Timeline

  • Measured in weeks rather than months, a sole source procurement provides the Government with MTE Companies’ high-quality and CPARS-demonstrated performance six times faster than a standard procurement. With open discussions across the procurement process immediately following SBA approval, we offer the ability and expertise to help tailor pre-award requirements for our customers to best achieve their desired post-award outcomes.

Sole source orders require an offer and acceptance from the SBA.

Agency Contracting Officers receive Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA) from GSA and then can choose to procure via direct acquisitions or assisted acquisitions. If utilizing assisted acquisition office the agency does not need a DPA, the assisted acquisition office handling would have DPA. RFIs, RFQs, and RFPs over 8(a) competitive threshold must be posted to GSA’s eBuy at to meet fair opportunity requirements unless an exception to Fair Opportunity applies IAW FAR 16.505(b)(2)(i).
