How the Government Benefits

  • BioStar Solar is currently seeking full Tribal and ANC 8(a) benefits. Tribal and ANC 8(a) firms are eligible to receive sole-source 8(a) contracts regardless of dollar size, with no upper limit, while all other 8(a) firms may not receive sole-source contracts in excess of $3 million for manufacturing. Applicable regulation is 13CFR124.311(b).
  • Eliminating the bid process means acquisitions can occur substantially sooner, utilizing fewer governmental resources.
  • The Defense Appropriations Act provides that a command does not have to go through the A-76 process, but may do a direct conversion of that function to a private contractor, regardless of the number of civilian employees, if the command contracts with a firm that is 51% or more Native American owned, so long as the conversion is cost-effective. See OMB Circular A-76.
  • BioStar Solar can provide a full-service, PPA turnkey project. We provide all phases of development, including financing, engineering, procurement, construction, and facility operation and maintenance.
