Download as PDF 53684 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 174 / Friday, September 9, 2005 / Notices Center, Reston, VA 20192, telephone: (703) 648–4437, fax: (703) 648–5470. H. Eligible Programs of the Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians (OST) The Department of the Interior has responsibility for what may be the largest land trust in the world, approximately 56 million acres. OST oversees the management of these trust assets as well as maintains, invests, disburses, and reports to individual Indians and tribes on financial asset transactions generated from leasing and other commercial activities on these lands. The mission of the OST is to serve Indian communities by fulfilling Indian fiduciary trust responsibilities. This is to be accomplished through the implementation of a Comprehensive Trust Management Plan (CTM) that is designed to improve trust beneficiary services, ownership information, management of trust fund assets, and self-governance activities. A tribe operating under selfgovernance may include the following programs, services, functions, and activities or portions thereof in a funding agreement: 1. Financial Trust Services (Individual Indian Monies Financial Services) 2. Appraisal Services Responsibilities for the operation of these programs have been shifted from BIA to OST. Tribes/Consortia that currently perform these programs under a Self-Governance funding agreement with the Indian Affairs, may negotiate a separate Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with OST that outlines the roles and responsibilities for management of these programs. The MOU between the Tribe/Consortium and OST outlines the roles and responsibilities for the performance of the OST program by the Tribe/ Consortium. If those roles and responsibilities are already fully articulated in the existing SelfGovernance funding agreement, an MOU is not required. To the extent that any necessary elements are missing from the funding agreement, however, an MOU will be negotiated between the Tribe/Consortium and OST. Other Self-Governance Tribes/ Consortia that do not perform these programs may be eligible to enter into a self-governance funding agreement with OST. In such cases, the Tribe/ Consortium would negotiate a funding agreement with OST and the funding would come from OST program dollars. These funding agreements would stipulate the roles and responsibilities of the Tribe/Consortium and OST and no separate MOU would be necessary. VerDate Aug<18>2005 15:19 Sep 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 For questions regarding selfgovernance, contact Carrie Moore, Director, Office of External Affairs, Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians (MS–5140 MIB), 1849 C Street NW., Washington, DC 20240– 0001, phone: (202) 208–4866, fax: (202) 208–7545. IV. Programmatic Targets During Fiscal Year 2006, upon request of a self-governance tribe, each non-BIA bureau will negotiate funding agreements for its eligible programs beyond those already negotiated. Dated: August 24, 2005. James E. Cason, Associate Deputy Secretary.
