Oversight of Indirect Costs and Contract Provisions of the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act. Hearing before the Select Committee on Indian Affairs. United States Senate, Ninety-Seventh Congress, Second Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs.
The purpose of the oversight hearing was to hear from administration and tribal witnesses on the implementation of the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (Public Law 93-638), which was signed into law on January 4, 1975. The hearing focused on five concerns of the legislation: (1) the new draft regulations pending publication for comment which amend Bureau of Indian Affairs regulations implementing P.L. 93-638; (2) the method for determining the secretarial level of funding for a P.L. 93-638 contract in the first and subsequent years of operation; (3) the administrative, incremental, or indirect cost problems associated with 638 contracts and recommendations for necessary changes in the system to assure continued tribal desire to operate programs; and (4) the problems associated with the indirect cost rate and recommendations for necessary changes. Thirty-three representatives offering testimony to the hearing included spokespeople from: National Congress of American Indians; Department of Interior; Rock Point School, Arizona; Alamo Navajo School Board, New Mexico; Association of Contract Tribal Schools; Lake Superior Band of Chippewa Indians; Passamaquoddy Tribe; Fort Hall Business Council; Papago Tribe of Arizona; and Penobscot Nation. Written documentation submitted to the hearing is also attached. (ERB)
