2004- House Hearing: ON S. 2172 TO MAKE TECHNICAL AMENDMENTS TO THE PROVISIONS OF THE INDIAN SELF-DETERMINATION AND EDUCATION ASSISTANCE ACT RELATING TO CONTRACT SUPPORT COSTS

“Since President Nixon’s time Indian tribes have shown that they are much better prepared than the Federal Government at providing services and programs to tribal members. There is no question on that point. Our policy as the Congress is to encourage more tribes to become contracting tribes, but frankly they will not be willing to do so if they are not equipped with all the tools and resources they need.
We will hear today from a commercial contract expert and, as he will testify, in all other contracts that the United States enters there is no question that the cost to carryout those contracts are provided to the contractor. I think that tribal contractors should be treated the same way.”
