Cherokee Nation Businesses is the economic engine of the Cherokee Nation, the largest Indian Nation in the United States. Cherokee Nation and its businesses employ 11,000 people. CNB owns companies in the gaming, hospitality, information technology, health care, personnel services, distribution, manufacturing, telecommunications, environmental services and security and defense industries.
The mission of Cherokee Nation Businesses is to grow the economy of Cherokee Nation through diversification and create jobs for Cherokee citizens in Oklahoma and other states. All of CNB’s profits are either reinvested into job creation or social services for tribal citizens. CNB and its subsidiaries posted $925 million in revenue last year.
CNB's portfolio of companies offers its partners and clients all the advantages of a tribal-owned, 8(a), SBA- and HUBZone-certified firm. The unlimited opportunities for sole sourcing make it the minority supplier of choice.
Federal agencies are able to initiate work with 8(a) firms through established contract vehicles instead of traditional open-market methods, saving time and money. As sole-source providers, CNB companies are able to offer faster delivery times and best-value pricing to help improve bottom-line results.
The straightforward acquisition process is efficient, and contracts are awarded in days, not weeks or months. A streamlined procurement process keeps administration costs to a minimum. And the tribal-owned status of CNB’s companies renders them exempt from the competitive $4 million threshold, as stated in 13 CFR 124 and FAR 19.805-1.
From construction services and health care to defense services and technology, CNB’s companies bring strong financial backing, demonstrated performance and an experienced management team to help clients meet today’s challenges and build healthy businesses for the future.
