2004- Thlopthlocco Tribal Town v. Eastern Oklahoma Regional Awarding Official, Bureau of Indian Affairs

On November 1, 2004, the Board of Indian Appeals (Board) received a notice of appeal from Thlopthlocco Tribal Town, Oklahoma (Tribe), through counsel, appealing an October 8, 2004, decision of the Eastern Oklahoma Regional Awarding Official, Bureau of Indian Affairs (Regional Awarding Official; BIA). The October 8 decision notified the Tribe that BIA intends
to reassume, on a non-emergency basis, operation of programs contracted to the Tribe under the Indian Self-Determination Act (ISDA), 25 U.S.C. §§ 450–450n (2000), because of the Tribe’s failure to submit its required single audit report for fiscal year 2002. For the reasons discussed below, the Board dismisses this appeal as premature.
