MBE through NMSDC

WHPacific is certified as a Minority Business Enterprise by the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC). Through this certification, our private sector clients can be confident that they’ve chosen to work with a legitimate minority owned business. The NMSDC’s certification process adheres to a consistent and identical criteria nation-wide, ensuring those business certified are genuinely minority-owned and ready to do business.

100% owned by NANA Development Corporation, an Alaska Native corporation representing the interests of more than 13,500 Iñupiat shareholders, WHPacific’s MBE status offers our clients an avenue to meet organizational diversity spend goals. Organizations who prioritize and value diversity spend in their operations look for NMSDC certified Minority Business Enterprises.

California Public Utilities Commission Certified

WHPacific is a certified Minority-Owned business with the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) through The Supplier Clearinghouse. The CPUC regulates privately-owned electric, natural gas, telecommunications, water, railroad, rail transit, and passenger transportation companies. The largest of these utilities (whose gross revenues exceed $25M) must meet annual spending goals for goods and services with woman, minority or disable veteran owned, and/or LGBT businesses. These firms are required to be certified by the CPUC.

Prime Federal Contractors

Subcontracts awarded to Alaska Native Corporations (ANCs) and Indian tribes may be counted towards a prime contractor’s goals for subcontracting with small business (SB) and small disadvantaged business (SDB) concerns. Such credit can be taken even where the ANC or Indian tribe may be “other than small” under the Small Business administration (SBA) regulation and even if the ANC owned business is not certified by the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) as a Small Disadvantaged Business (“SDB”).

ANC ownership extends to all subsidiaries and affiliates of an ANC regardless of tier. Therefore, all purchases made through any of NANA Regional Corporation’s larger majority-owned subsidiaries, such as WHPacific Incorporated, can now be counted towards the prime contractor’s SB SDB goals.
