ALASKAN INDIAN TRIBE GETS LARGEST CASH CONTRACT EVER

EPA, in concert with the U.S. Small Business Administration, today announced the award of a $65 million contract to the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC) Aerospace, a small, disadvantaged business enterprise founded by Inupiat Eskimos. Under its new contract with EPA, ASRC Aerospace will provide information management, records management and library support services at EPA offices nationwide for up to five years. This is the largest contract ever awarded by EPA to an Indian tribe or an Alaskan Native Corporation. The contract was awarded under the authority of the Business Opportunity Development Reform Act of 1988 (Public Law 100-656), which permits noncompetitive awards to small, disadvantaged tribal firms to provide business development opportunities.
