DOI and OPM Soliciting Feedback on Government Training Modules Related to Tribal Consultation
April 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
On November 30, 2022, President Biden issued a new Presidential Memorandum on Uniform Standards for Tribal Consultation, providing more consistency in how agencies initiate, provide notice for, conduct, record, and report on Tribal consultations. In addition, the new Presidential Memorandum directs the head of each agency to require annual Tribal consultation training for all employees who work with Tribal Nations or on policies with Tribal implications. On Monday, April 17, 2023, the Department of the Interior (DOI) and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) will hold a consultation session to get tribal leader feedback to help shape these training modules. Written comments will also be accepted until May 17, 2023, and can be sent to Consultation@bia.gov.
