Congressional Investigation of ANCs

In 2005, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform requested documents regarding federal contracts with Alaska Native Corporations (ANCs) from the departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and State. The documents highlighted significant problems with no-bid contracts with ANCs, including a 2002 contract between the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and NJVC, a joint venture between Chenega Technology Services Corporate and Arctic Slope Regional Corporation subsidiary Arctic Slope Regional Corporation Communications, Ltd. (ASRCC). According to a press release issued by the Committee, the documents revealed that NJVC’s performance under the contract was “seriously deficient with respect to security issues,” including instances of improper handling of classified documents, misuse of computers, improper handling of bomb threats, and improper securing of secure areas. The findings were revealed at a hearing on ANCs held in June 2006.
