2016 – TSGAC – Identification of Staff for Developing Level of Need Funded Data

The TSGAC previously commented to you in a letter dated September 27, 2016 (enclosed), that the 25 U.S.C. 458aaa-13(a)(2) of the Indian Self-Determination and Education
Assistance Act requires the annual report to Congress on the administration of the Tribal SelfGovernance Program include a detailed analysis of LNF. This analysis must include the level of need funded for each Tribe, either directly by the Secretary, under Self-Determination
Contracts, or under Self-Governance Compacts and Funding Agreements. However, the most recent reports do not include this analysis, leaving Tribes and Congress with less data to support continued funding increases to IHS.
