Indian Incentive Program
The Indian Incentive Program provides for the payment of 5 percent of the amount subcontracted to an Indian organization or Indian-owned economic enterprise. This definition includes Native Alaskans and Native Hawaiians, when authorized under the terms of the contract. DoD contracts with Prime Contractors that contain the FAR clause 52.226-1, Utilization of Indian Organizations and Indian Owned Economic Enterprises, are eligible for incentive payments under the Fiscal Year programs. These contracts fully require contractors to use their best efforts to give Indian organizations and Indian-owned economic enterprises the maximum practicable opportunity to participate in subcontracts awarded consistent with efficient performance of the contract(s). Contracting officers, subject to the terms and conditions of the contract, shall authorize an incentive payment of 5 percent of the amount paid to subcontractors that are Indian organizations or Indian-owned economic enterprises.
The FY 2008 Appropriations Act made $15 million available for incentive payments to prime contractors and to small businesses that use Indian-owned businesses or enterprises as subcontractors at any tier. For actions after Sept. 13, 2001, sub-tier contractors who subcontract to Indian-owned firms are eligible for the incentive payments by the prime contractor inserting DFARS Clause 252.226-7001 into the contract. These clauses may be added at any time during the life of the contract by the prime contractor. The OSD SADBU is the administrator for this program.
