The Department of Defense Mentor-Protégé Program
This program provides reimbursement to DoD prime contractors who would like to transfer technology and/or train a small disadvantaged business in a new process or technology. If your company is ramping up on a new program, or needs to add a dual source to a current program, the Mentor-Protégé program is a perfect vehicle to reduce risk and costs normally associated with source development. It was through participation in this program that ACTI and Lockheed were awarded the prestigious Nunn Perry award in February of 2009.

History & Ownership
ACTI was founded in October of 1996 by Michael D. Rauch, President and CEO, and is located in a state-of-the-art composites manufacturing facility on the northern shore of the Olympic Peninsula. ACTI delivers aircraft parts and assemblies to both domestic and international customers and in the process has earned awards and ratings for the highest levels of quality and delivery.
In July of 2003, ACTI partnered with Koniag Development Corporation (KDC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Koniag, Inc. Koniag is a federally recognized Alaska Native Corporation organized under the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act whose shareholders originate from Kodiak Island. Today earnings from KDC’s subsidiaries not only go towards shareholder dividends but also towards important cultural and educational activities. These include their Education Foundation which provides scholarships that can be used for educational opportunities that advance the economic and social needs of Alaska Natives, and the Alutiiq Museum and other archeological repositories that help preserve the rich native history of Alaska.
SDB and Other Incentive Programs to Engage ACTI
Small Disadvantaged Business and HUBZone
Prior to October 2011 ACTI was certified by the Small Business Administration as a Small Disadvantaged Business, an 8(a), and as a HUBZone business. Documentation of this can be found by visiting the SBA-DOD Central Contractor Registration (CCR)database or the SBA’s Pro-Net database.
Always an SDB
It is important to point out that under recent amendments to
the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA), prime contractors will receive SDB credits for subcontracting with ANC-owned firms even if an ANC-owned firm is no longer a small businesses or SDB. This means that in the future, when ACTI outgrows its SDB and “small” status, prime contractors will still be able to receive SDB credits for subcontracting
