Tigua Inc and all of our Subsidiary Companies qualify for the Indian Incentive Program as shown below. The Indian Incentive Program (IIP) is a congressionally sponsored program that provides a 5% rebate back to the prime contractor on the total amount subcontracted to an Indian-Owned Economic Enterprise or Indian Organization, in accordance with DFARS Clause 252.226-7001. Through the generation of subcontracts to India-Owned Economic Enterprise or Indian Organizations, the IIP fulfills its purpose as an economic multiplier for Native American communities. Department of Defense (DoD) prime contractors, regardless of size of contract, that contain the above referenced clause(s) are eligible for incentive payments.
Native Americans have a long history [PPT] of patriotically contributing to the U.S. Military. Today, Native American small businesses in the fields of engineering, construction, IT, and other areas, continue to supply the Department of Defense (DoD) with dependable high-quality supplies and services.
Despite recent upward trends in economic activity, Indian reservations still suffer some of the worst poverty in the country. In an effort to boost Native American economic development, Congress has authorized Federal contracting agencies to “encourage” the use of Native American owned subcontractors. The Department of Defense (DoD) Indian Incentive Program (IIP) is a viable example of this encouragement. For additional information please visit the following website:
