Navajo Business Opportunity Act: Forms Download

Certify Your Business
Navajo Business Opportunity Act Title 5, Chapter 2 (more): Requires that business entities within the Navajo Nation that are issuing requests for bids provide certified Navajo-owned businesses the opportunity to bid on projects (purchases of materials or services).

Initial Certification Application Requirements
The Navajo Nation shall certify all businesses according to the following priority classification:

  • Priority #1 - 100% owned and controlled business entity
  • Priority #2 - Navajo businesses that are less than 100% owned and controlled but have majority ownership and control (51%+)
  • Other Indians that own and control all or a majority of the business activities
  • Any tribally-owned and operated business entity

Determine your Contract Status
You can download forms for Construction or Procurement and professional Services contracts below. You can also download the Certification Check List below and recent changes and modifications that affect this process.

Re-certification Requirements
Certification is an annual process. After your initial certification, if you want to be re-certified, you will need to reapply; however, the re-certification process is not as involved as long as you file your forms annually or at least less than six months after your certification expiration ends.

Within six months after expiration date, you will need:

  • Cover letter requesting re-certification
  • Updated financials (notarized bank account and verification of financial statements)
  • List of past projects (list, type, location and dollar amount)
  • Significant changes (of company organization, structure, activity, or ownership)

If you are requesting re-certification six months after your certification has expired, you must formally re-apply.
