S&K Aerospace, a highly qualified aerospace firm owned by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, offers clients significant savings in time and expense through proven, well-managed and reliable methods of contracting. We have a solid reputation, excellent client references and a sizeable line of credit to fund large contracts.SBA Certified 8(a) Firm
As a certified 8(a) firm, S&K Aerospace provides government program managers a timely, straightforward and efficient contracting process.
The 8(a) program was developed by the Small Business Administration (SBA) to allow socially and economically disadvantaged firms with expert capabilities equal access to business opportunities. The SBA enters into contracts with the federal procuring agencies as the prime contractor, subcontracting the actual performance of the work to 8(a) companies. The 8(a) procurement cycle is significantly faster than other means of contracting.
When using the 8(a) contracting method, a program manager may simply select a firm as a suggested source and request that the procurement be pursued under the 8(a) program. The often lengthy, expensive, and tedious process of justifying source selection is thereby avoided. Because 8(a) companies may subcontract portions of the work to other firms, a perfect team can be assembled for a particular project.Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Contracting
An Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract can provide the perfect solution when timing and quantities are uncertain. IDIQ contracts permit government purchasers to stock quantities at minimum levels, order supplies or services with ease after requirements materialize, and limit the government's obligation to the minimum quantity specified in the contract.
Supplies or services are acquired through issuance of individual task or delivery orders. When funding is a problem for the government contracting officer, an IDIQ contract is an ideal solution because the tasks can be aligned commensurate with available funding.
There is no limit to the maximum quantity that can be ordered under an IDIQ contractAdditional Benefits
