...indicative of the ongoing misperceptions and lack of understanding surrounding ANCs and their participation in federal government 8(a) contracting. "Over the past three years, ANCSA corporations have experienced losses in federal contract revenues which have had a significant impact on shareholder benefits including dividends, elder benefits, employment, scholarships, and other economic, social, and cultural development programs that were part of the original intent of the business development model required by ANCSA.

...Congress passed a series of laws which made ANCs eligible for federal contracting opportunities, including SBA's 8(a) program," McCaskill wrote. "Since then, many ANCs have grown to the multi-million dollar corporations that are among the largest federal contractors. In 2009, I held a hearing that highlighted my concerns about ANCs' participation in the 8(a) program, including a lack of oversight by SBA, the use of ANCs to circumvent the federal contracting process, and that the benefits were not reaching disadvantaged Alaskan natives."
