Bering Straits Native Corporation (BSNC) offers world-class expertise and resources to help our customers succeed. As an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC), BSNC provides a unique opportunity to partner with an Indigenous organization whose mission goes beyond business. BSNC’s vast number of highly-qualified subsidiaries include many 8(a) and HUBZone Certified businesses.
BSNC’s subsidiaries include several companies that are currently or formerly certified under the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 8(a) program. The SBA 8(a) program provides eligibility for special contracting and subcontracting initiatives and government-directed award opportunities. Because these subsidiaries are both 8(a) certified and ANC owned, they enjoy unique procurement advantages with the Federal government. BSNC currently has two companies that are also HubZone certified via the SBA. By contracting with these subsidiaries an agency can fulfill their small business goals. In addition, BSNC’s subsidiaries are Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) certified. We are also contract holders on numerous GSA Schedules and other contract vehicles.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of our people through economic development while protecting our land and preserving our culture and heritage.
BSNC shares cannot be bought and sold on Wall Street – and we like that. Our more than 8,000 shareholders are descendants of people whose traditions go back for centuries in Alaska. By contracting with BSNC, and our many 8(a) and HUBZone Certified businesses, our customers contribute to our mission of economic development.
