DGG subsidiaries have several unique abilities that separate them from the competition including:
- Significant financial strength to manage working capital requirements and a bonding capacity in excess of $250 million (aggregate) and $50 million (single project). This level of financial fortitude is rare for small businesses and it provides our clients a stability factor that most small companies cannot offer.
- DGG is comprised of a family of companies with 8(a) and small disadvantaged business (SDB) set-aside certifications and extensive in-house resources. We have “reach-back ability” to utilize Doyon’s headquarters and sister subsidiary resources and expertise to meet specific contract requirements.
All of DGG’s subsidiaries have experience performing multiple projects at different geographic locations simultaneously throughout the United States – with project and full-service offices established nationwide.
- Management and operations team members at DGG are well-known Subject Matter Experts in their fields and are available for consultation.
- DGG’s management teams specialize in a wide range of design/build, new construction, renovation, maintenance, and repair services for vertical and horizontal construction, as well as providing quality control, safety, scheduling, logistics, and procurement services.
DGG has the financial capacity, in-house resources, and expertise to fully support both small and large projects from inception through completion.
We at DGG believe in the spirit of teamwork and partnership to create and foster a highly-skilled team that produces excellent results on a consistent basis. We welcome the opportunity to combine our knowledge and expertise with qualified team members to deliver the highest quality project possible in the industry today.
8(a) Contracting Advantages
Several Doyon Government Group entities have been participants in, and two are currently a participant in, the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 8(a) Business Development program, which was enacted in 1958 to help small disadvantaged businesses compete in the Federal marketplace.
Benefits of working with a Native 8(a) business include
- Native participation within the 8(a) Business Development Program encourages federal agencies to contract with and help Native businesses grow, because those businesses have been found to be both economically and socially disadvantaged entities.
- Native 8(a) businesses are community-based (as opposed to individually-based) and owned by Native people. Revenue and profits from our work support important educational and community support programs.
- Working with 8(a) businesses helps create economic opportunities and social benefits for entire Native communities.
- Participation in the 8(a) program by Native businesses has helped Native communities develop their own business tools and become active participants in the US economy across all states.
- Contracts awarded to Native businesses provide good jobs for Americans in every state.
Additionally, as a Tribal entity, our companies are considered Small Disadvantage Businesses (SDB) when contracted as a subcontractor, regardless of our firm’s size, offering the Prime Contractor teaming partner’s assistance in meeting subcontracting goals. A government agency may contract directly with an 8(a) Tribal entity, and the entity may receive a directly negotiated contract regardless of dollar amount. The eligibility of the entity for a directly negotiated award may not be challenged by another participant or any other party. Federal agencies contracting to an 8(a) Tribal entity may claim SDB and Native American credits.
Tribal entities have a special set of rules under the 8(a) Program, excluding exemptions for lifetime contract limits and are exempt from the competitive thresholds and are eligible to receive direct source awards up to $100M.
Subcontracts awarded to DGG entities count towards subcontracting goals for small business and small disadvantaged business (SDB) concerns, regardless of the size or SBA certification status.
Indian Incentive Program
Prime contractors on Department of Defense (DoD) contracts can gain an economic advantage through the Indian Incentive Program (IIP) by subcontracting with DGG entities. Under current regulations, Utilization of Indian Organizations and Indian-Owned Economic Enterprises, DoD Prime Contractors with subcontracts to selected DGG entities are eligible for incentive payments under the program.
