The ANC Advantage

The ANC Advantage
As an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC) 8(a) Vista Defense can help government customers establish a sole-source contract vehicle up to $100 million. We work with you directly to develop an effective and efficient solution on YOUR terms rather than having your program disrupted by low-price/technically-acceptable competition. Our process:

  • Brings certainty and predictability to incumbent contract employees
  • Reduces contract award time frame
  • Reduces workload on customer resources
  • Meets small business and socioeconomic goals
  • Cannot be protested
An award can be easily accomplished in 7-21 days inclusive of ensuring a non-protestable contract award.

Step 1: Decision is made to issue a Direct Award to Vista Defense

Step 2: Intent to Award letter with PWS is sent to Vista Defense’s SBA representative

Step 3: SBA reviews and makes determination that Vista Defense is capable of execution

Step 4: SBA sends letter of acceptance to Contracting Officer (CO) and Specialist

Step 5: CO informs Vista Defense and agency that they may enter into negotiations

Step 6: Once mutually acceptable terms are agreed upon, contract is awarded

  • An award is normally made in 1 – 3 weeks
  • No need to develop exhaustive and rigorous specifications for evaluation of bidders
  • No pre-award documentation
  • No requirement for extensive post-award documentation
  • An assurance that government requirements are met at the earliest time possible
