Standards for the Review and Approval of CSC in the BIA

“The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) has developed its Contract Suppon Costs (CSC) policy with the active participation of Indian Tribes and interested tribal representatives. The BIA has always sought to maintain an openness concerning CSC issues and has consistently provided information. guidance, and technical
assistance to Awardees in their development of CSC proposals. For some, CSC is a mystery – a confusing category of costs that are seemingly allowed or disallowed without rhyme or reason. For others, CSC provides that little something extra that can make the difference between having to sacrifice scarce program resources to cover administrative costs and actually building a stable tribal infrastructure capable of administering quality programs.”
