The Native American Communities 8(a) Program Works

Participation of Native American communities in the Small Business Administration’s 8(a) program has proven its importance to building strong Native communities that have been devastated by economic distress. Native enterprises provide quality performance at cost-efficient rates to Federal customers while returning significant benefits directly into Native American communities by sharing profits with hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of tribal members. The Native 8(a) program is a rare Federal economic program that works:

Economic Independence for Native American Communities
  1. SBA 8(a) program fulfills the Federal government’s unique obligations to Native Americans;
  2. Access to Federal contracting opportunities to qualified Native community enterprises provides crucial incentives that stimulate economic development for Native communities and enterprises; provides educational scholarships and training, and encourages entrepreneurship in Native communities Generates economic activity for Non-Natives
  3. Native community contractors generate millions of dollars in economic activity in their  surrounding communities with goods and services to support 8(a) businesses;
  4. More than 31,000 jobs have been created nationwide as a result of the program.

Brings choice and competition to the contracting process
 
  1. Federal contracting is a highly concentrated marketplace dominated by a handful of large companies. Native American enterprises struggled to break into the market and have only recently begun to demonstrate the success of its participants in the 8(a) program;
  2. Incentives to use Native community enterprises have allowed for the expansion of suppliers to the Federal government;
  3. Native American enterprises receive 1.2% of all Federal contract awards.

Strengthen and Expand the Program
 
A 2006 Government Accountability Office report recommended no legislative changes to the program yet suggested SBA take administrative and regulatory action to improve oversight. Any changes to the Native 8(a) program would harm the unique obligation the Federal government has to Native Americans, cripple the services the Native community enterprises provide to Federal customers and nullify the success of the program to date. Enhanced monitoring and oversight of 8(a) will lead to an expansion of the contracting opportunities for all participants.

The 8(a) Program is Efficient and Cost Effective
 
Native enterprises provide the government with a legal contracting option that is efficient and cost effective while permitting the government to achieve its policy of supporting disadvantaged and small businesses and providing benefits to some of the poorest, most underemployed people in America.
