Prince of Wales Tribal Enterprise Consortium LLC (POWTEC) is a professional technical firm with more than 10 years of experience supporting critical projects for federal agencies, state and local governments, and tribal entities.  In 2003, POWTEC became an 8(a) certified small disadvantaged business (SDB) through the Small Business Association's (SBA) 8(a) Business Development program, which provides a foothold in the federal contracting marketplace for  socio-economically disadvantaged companies. In January 2012, POWTEC became a successful graduate of the SBA 8(a) program.


POWTEC was formed on September 4, 2001 by the Craig Tribal Association (CTA) [formerly known as the Craig Community Association], the Organized Village of Kasaan (OVK), and a woman-owned corporation. Each tribe initially had 33% ownership and grew to their current ownership of 50%. The interest was in forming a for-profit company that provided sustainability. 


With sustainability in mind, POWTEC was originally formed to provide information technology and professional engineering services to commercial and federal customers on a nationwide basis.  Over time, POWTEC found other ways to help bring sustainability to both tribes in the form of dividends. These dividends have been used by both tribes to help shareholders, other tribes, and the community at large on Prince of Wales Island.
