Forest Products

Forest Products Preference Program

Alaska forest products receive a 7 percent preference in a state procurement bid for wood products manufactured from Alaska timber. To be considered a supplier eligible for the Alaska Forest Product Preference, a supplier must also annually notify the Department of Community and Economic Development of their willingness to supply forest products.

A supplier eligible for the Alaska Forest Product Preference may also be eligible for the Alaska Product Preference program. Check with the Department of Commerce, Community & Economic Development for product eligibility and annual requirements.
