Native American Business Enterprise Center - North Carolina, New Mexico, and Oklahoma: The Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) is soliciting competitive applications from organizations to operate Native American Business Enterprise Centers (NABECs) (formerly Native American Business Development Centers (NABDCs)) under MBDAs Native American Business Enterprise Center Program in the following geographic areas: 1) North Carolina NABEC in areas of Cherokee/Asheville, Charlotte, Lumberton or Pembroke, NC in the state of North Carolina 2) New Mexico NABEC in the areas of Albuquerque, Farmington or Gallup, NM in the state of New Mexico and 3) Oklahoma NABEC in the areas of Oklahoma City or Tulsa, OK in the state of Oklahoma For-profit entities (including sole proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations), non-profit organizations, state and local government entities, American Indian Tribes and educational institutions are eligible to operate NABECs. The NABEC Program requirements set forth herein increase the business and economic impact of individual NABEC projects by requiring that project operators deploy standardized business assistance services directly to Native American and other minority-owned businesses, develop a network of strategic partnerships and provide strategic business consulting within the respective NABECs geographical service area. These requirements will be used to generate increased results with respect to financing and contracts awarded to Native American- and minority-owned businesses and are thus a key component of the NABEC Program. In order to receive consideration under this competitive solicitation, applicants must comply with all the requirements set forth in this Announcement of Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO or Announcement). This is not a grant program to help start a business. Applications submitted must be to operate a Native American Business Enterprise Center and to provide business consultation to eligible Native American and to other minority clients. Applications that do not meet these requirements will be rejected. Note: MBDA published a Federal Register notice on August 29, 2003 (68 FR 51981), as amended on September 30, 2003 (68 FR 56267), February 11, 2004 (69 FR 6644) and February 19, 2004 (69 FR 7726), soliciting competitive applications for operators of the following eight NABDCs (now NABECs): Arizona Statewide NABDC, California Statewide NABDC, Minnesota/Iowa Statewide NABDC, New Mexico Statewide NABDC, North Carolina/Cherokee/Ashville NABDC, North/South Dakota Statewide NABDC, Northwest NABDC and the Oklahoma Statewide NABDC. This competition resulted in financial assistance awards (cooperative agreements) being issued for all eight locations, with a three-year award period of January 1, 2004 through December 31, 2006. On September 6, 2006, MBDA published a Federal Register notice (71 FR 52529) soliciting competitive applications for operators of four regional NABECs (in place of the eight prior NABECs) for the next three-year award period commencing January 1, 2007. However, on October 25, 2006, MBDA published a Federal Register notice (71 FR 62420) (i) cancelling the September 6, 2006 solicitation and (ii) amending the original competitive solicitation to extend the total project award period for all eight of the original NABECs from three years to four years. MBDA took these actions in order to provide the Agency with a sufficient opportunity to solicit input from its stakeholders regarding any proposed program changes to be implemented during the next three-year award period. Operators of five of the eight NABECs accepted MBDAs invitation to extend the original award period for an additional year, while the operators of the North Carolina/Ashville/Cherokee NABEC, New Mexico Statewide NABEC and Oklahoma Statewide NABEC declined MBDAs invitation. This FFO solicits competitive applications for the North Carolina NABEC, New Mexico NABEC and the Oklahoma NABEC. This FFO replaces in its entirety the previously published competitive solicitations for these three NABECs, although it generally adheres to previous programmatic requirements with updates being made to the computer requirements.
