Line of Business

Akima supports a diverse portfolio of operating companies with one strategic goal: enabling superior outcomes for our customers’ missions.  Together with its operating companies, Akima represents an uncommonly broad array of specialized talents, technologies, domain expertise, and proven program success at some of the most visible and demanding implementations across all of government and industry.

Akima is an enterprise with 30 years of federal contracting experience and over 7,500 employees supporting more than 14,300 Iñupiat shareholders in the NANA region of Alaska.  Akima provides the backbone infrastructure to support more than 40 socio-economically disadvantaged small businesses (SDBs) with mature business processes and shared back-office support services normally only found in a Fortune 500 defense contractor.

We leverage this infrastructure and the shared experiences of our operating companies to bring world-class solutions to U.S. Department of Defense, intelligence community, and civilian organizations in 46 states and 12 countries.

A company born in one of the most remote corners of the globe is now powering some of the most critical, cutting-edge work performed in the federal government. Akima is the largest and fastest-growing subsidiary of the NANA Corporation, one of 13 regional entities created by the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act. The landmark legislation aimed to resolve long-standing issues surrounding aboriginal land claims in Alaska and to spur economic growth among Alaska Native populations. From this unique heritage, Akima was born.

Headquartered in Herndon, Virginia, Akima supports a network of over 40 socioeconomically disadvantaged small businesses through an innovative shared services model that provides business processes and shared back-office support at a level akin to that found in a Fortune 500 defense contractor. This enables Akima’s portfolio of companies to operate as a small business in terms of autonomy, customer interaction and decision making, while receiving support from an organization with more than 30 years of experience working with the federal government.

Akima's key capabilities are in Information Technology, Systems Engineering, Base Operations & Logistics Management, Protective Services & Detention Management, Aviation Services and Construction. Akima ensures non-discrimination in all programs and activities in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
