Talk of Alaska: Alaska Native Corporations

Alaska Native Corporations, in securing federal contracts, have brought billions of dollars to Alaska. But Congress is considering legislation that may change the SBA’s 8(a) contracting system and small business set-asides. What does the future look like for ANCs and federal contracts? How have the corporations changed the lives of Alaska Natives? And is the contracting system fair?
