What are MEC Distribution’s capabilities?

Like all Mandaree Enterprises companies, we are business development specialists. MEC Distribution can capture, staff and manage federal contracts in virtually any line of business in any location.
What are the benefits of partnering with an 8(a) company and/or a small disadvantaged business?
The SBA 8(a) Business Development Program helps socially and economically disadvantaged companies gain experience in the federal marketplace. 8(a)-certified companies are eligible for valuable federal contracts that are set aside solely for them. Because 8(a) contracts are set aside, the pool of applicants for them is severely restricted and the chance of successful capture significantly increased. Strategic partnerships with 8(a) companies may take the form of joint ventures, subcontracts, and mentor-protege relationships. In all cases, these partnerships afford non-8(a) partners – including large businesses – access to 8(a) set aside contracts from which they would otherwise be excluded.
What is the Indian Incentive Program?
The Indian Incentive Program provides a 5% rebate to a prime contractor on the total amount subcontracted to an Indian-Owned Economic Enterprise. Department of Defense prime contractors with a subcontract worth $500,000 or more are eligible for incentive payments. In practical terms, this means that MEC Distribution and its strategic partners have a significant pricing advantage in Department of Defense contracts over non-tribally-owned concerns.
What types of teaming options does MEC Distribution offer?
We work with our strategic partners in prime/subcontract agreements, joint ventures and mentor-protégé relationships.
Are there tax advantages to partnering with MEC Distribution?
Yes, although the specific benefits depend on the nature of the partnership. For federal and commercial contracting partnerships, the primary benefit derives from MEC Distribution’s ability to parlay its tribal tax exemptions into highly competitive bid pricing. For partnerships in commercial acquisitions, the reduced tax burden experienced by companies acquired by MEC Distribution results in enhanced profitability, competitiveness and market position.
What sets MEC Distribution apart from other small or tribal businesses?
MEC Distribution belongs to the Mandaree Enterprises family of companies, which has been continuously owned and operated by the MHA Nation since 1990. In that time, Mandaree has expanded its operations from its Fort Berthold Indian Reservation headquarters into 28 states, the District of Columbia, and locations abroad. Mandaree has won numerous awards for excellence and entrepreneurial success from a variety of organizations including, on multiple occasions, the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Does MEC Distribution work in my state?
Yes, we are able to perform work anywhere in the United States and can support operations abroad.
