SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR part 
1320, which implement the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-
13), require that interested members of the public and affected 
agencies have an opportunity to comment on information collection and 
recordkeeping activities (see 5 CFR 1320.8 (d)). This notice identifies 
an information collection activity that the Office of the Special 
Trustee for American Indians will submit to OMB for extension or re-
approval.
    Public Law 103-412, The American Indian Trust Fund Management 
Reform Act of 1994, allows Indian tribes on a voluntary basis to take 
their funds out of trust status within the Department of the Interior 
(and the Federal Government) in order to manage such funds on their 
own. 25 CFR Part 1200, Subpart B, Section 1200.13, ``How does a tribe 
apply to withdraw funds?'' describes the requirements for application 
for withdrawal. The Act covers all tribal trust funds including

[[Page 44044]]

judgment funds as well as some settlement funds, but excludes funds 
held in Individual Indian Money accounts. Both the Act and the 
regulation state that upon withdrawal of the funds, the Department of 
the Interior (and the Federal Government) have no further liability for 
such funds. Accompanying their application for withdrawal of trust 
funds, tribes are required to submit a Management Plan for managing the 
funds being withdrawn, to protect the funds once they are out of trust 
status.
    This information collection allows the Office of the Special 
Trustee to collect the tribes' applications for withdrawal of funds 
held in trust by the Department of the Interior. If this information 
were not collected, the Office of the Special Trustee would not be able 
to comply with The American Indian Trust Fund Management Reform Act of 
1994, and tribes would not be able to withdraw funds held for them in 
trust by the Department of the Interior.
