2018 – OIG Evaluation – Indian Affairs Offices’ Poor Recordkeeping and Coordination Threaten Impact of Tiwahe Inititative

This evaluation focuses on the Office of Indian Services and the Office of Self Governance, two organizations within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs (AS-IA) that manage aspects of funding for American Indian and
Alaska Native tribes. We reviewed the roles of these offices in distributing moneys to tribes for funding social service and child welfare programs through the Tiwahe Initiative, a 5-year pilot program (fiscal years (FYs) 2015 through 2019) intended to protect and strengthen tribal communities.
