  • U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Indian Incentive Program- Native Hawaiian Small Business Concern

PKS, in addition to being a Native Hawaiian-Owned Company, is also certified as a Native Hawaiian Small Business Concern.

The DoD Indian Incentive Program has been revised to include “Native Hawaiian Small Business Concerns” as defined by DFARS clauses 252.226.103 -104.

DoD contracts with Prime Contractors that contain the FAR clause 52.226– 1 “Utilization of Indian Organizations, Indian-Owned Economic Enterprises, and Native Hawaiian Small Business Concerns” are eligible for incentive payments.

In accordance with the FY03 Authorization, action after 13 September 2001, subtier contractors who subcontract to an Indian-Owned firm (including a Native Hawaiian Small Business Concern) are eligible for the incentive payments by the Prime Contractor inserting DFARS clause 252.226 – 7001 in his contract. These clauses may be added at anytime during the performance of the contract by the Prime Contractor.

The Prime Contractor, on its own behalf or on behalf of a subcontractor at any tier, may request an incentive payment in accordance with this clause. The incentive amount that may be requested is 5% of the estimated cost, target cost, or fixed price included in the subcontract at the time of award to the . . . Native Hawaiian Small Business Concern. If the Prime Contractor requests and receives an incentive payment on behalf of a subcontractor, the Prime Contractor is obligated to pay the subcontractor the incentive amount.

The Prime Contractor shall insert the substance of this clause, including paragraph 252.226 – 7001(g), in all subcontracts exceeding $500,000 for which further subcontracting opportunities may exist.

Small Businesses are permitted to perform as prime contractors without a subcontracting plan. Additionally, Small Businesses are eligible to receive the 5% incentive payment for subcontracting to an Indian-Owned firm (including a Native Hawaiian Small Business Concern).
