Sealaska Corporation was formed in 1972 as one of the 13 Regional Native Corporations created as a result of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act. Sealaska currently has more than 21,000 tribal member shareholders descended from the three Alaska Native groups of Southeast Alaska—the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian.

SES TECH Global Solutions (SES-TECH) was established as a joint venture between Tetra Tech and Sealaska Environmental Services, an 8(a) Alaska Native Corporation and a subsidiary of Sealaska Corporation. The joint venture brought together the extensive experience of Sealaska Environmental Services and Tetra Tech in managing environmental remediation and construction projects for a variety of clients, including projects requiring multidisciplinary skills, craft labor, and multiple subcontractor capabilities.

Significantly, the joint venture has been awarded more than $200 million worth of services to support the National Nuclear Security Administration Second Line of Defense Program. Since 2008, SES-TECH has installed more than 500 radiation portal monitors and associated electrical, civil, structural, and communication systems and structures at more than 100 locations in 30 countries worldwide, including the CENTCOM countries of Jordan and Kazakhstan.  Our combined teams have interacted with U.S. and host country stakeholders at ports and border crossings all over the world.

SES-TECH was a tremendously successful Mentor-Protégé relationship that has received high praise for its achievements. Significant project milestones include rapidly fabricating and delivering 27 state-of-the-art mobile radiation detection systems worldwide, meeting an accelerated schedule to equip Greece in advance of its Summer Olympic Games, responding to a rush request from the Spanish government for an early project start, and working with the Bulgarian government to develop an efficient permitting process.

Sealaska Environmental Services successfully graduated from the 8(a) program in July 2012. Our organizations continue to work together on existing contracts and in jointly pursuing non-8(a) opportunities.
