SBA Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB)

Goldbelt C6 is an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC), certified 8(a), and eligible per the FAR clauses for sole source contract awards of unlimited dollar value which are non-protestable. This status makes our company eligible for bidding and contracting benefit programs involved with federal procurement. As an Alaska Native Corporation (ANC), Goldbelt C6 self-certifies as an SDB.

The SBA published a notice in the Federal Register on September 23, 2008 to alert the small business community of the suspension of applications for the Small Disadvantaged Business Program. The suspension will have no effect on SBA’s 8(a) Business Development program. Small Businesses that participate in the 8(a) program are also small disadvantaged businesses. An Interim Final Rule was published (Fed. Register/Vol. 73 No. 193) that revised 13 CRF 124 to reflect the authority to allow small businesses to self-certify their SDB status, if they meet the criteria established by the SBA. As of October 3, 2008, companies seeking to obtain federal prime or subcontracts can self-certify their status as small disadvantaged businesses.
