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 Alaska Native Corporations such as IMAQ Resources 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.

Getting Started

If a solicitation has not been announced, a CO can, through 13 CFR 124.506(b), contract directly with IMAQ Resources. 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 IMAQ Resources, 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.

Contact the IMAQ Resources General Manager for additional information.
