2011- Apache Tribe of Oklahoma v. Southern Plains Regional Director, Bureau of Indian Affairs

This matter is before me on an appeal filed by the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma (the “Tribe”) from a Notice of Reassumption, issued February 10, 2011, by the Southern Plains Region Awarding Officer, Bureau of Indian Affairs (“BIA”), and concurred in by the Southern Plains Regional Director, BIA. The notice informed the Tribe that BIA would reassume administration of the programs included in six contracts awarded under the Indian Self-Determination and Education Act, 25 U.S.C. § 450 to 458bbb-2 (2006) BIA cited the Tribe’s mismanagement of funds as grounds for the reassumption. The Tribe filed an appeal and the Board of Indian Appeals (the “Board”) referred the appeal to this office for a recommended decision.
