The Department of Defense (DoD) Indian Incentive Program (IIP) is a congressional sponsored program designed to encourage the use of Native Amercian- Owned businesses by providing a 5% rebate incentive to the prime and sub-tier contractors on the total amount subcontracted to the Native Amercian-Owned enterprise or business.The IIP is managed by the Department of Defense Office of Small Business Programs. Funding availability is determined by Congress each year.
Contracting activities do not need to provide any funding for this program. Prime contractors must formally request the rebate by submitting a letter to the contracting officer along with supporting documentation proving the amount paid to the Native Amercian-Owned business or enterprise. Once approved, the contract is modified to authorize payment of the incentive.
