Abstract Representatives of the BIA and IHS seek renewal of the approvals for information collections conducted under their joint rule, 25 CFR part 900, implementing the Indian SelfDetermination and Education Assistance Act, as amended (25 U.S.C. 450 et seq.). The Act required the joint rule to govern how contracts and grants are awarded to Indian tribes, thereby avoiding the unnecessary burden or confusion associated with two sets of rules and information collection requirements. See 25 U.S.C. 450k(a)(2)(A)(ii). There is no change to the approved burden hours for this information collection. The information requirements for this joint rule represent significant differences from other agencies in several respects. Both the BIA and IHS let contracts for multiple programs whereas other agencies usually award single grants to tribes. Under the Act, tribes are entitled to contract and may renew contracts annually, whereas other agencies provide grants on a discretionary or competitive basis. The BIA and IHS use the information collected to determine applicant eligibility, evaluate applicant capabilities, protect the service population, safeguard Federal funds and other resources, and permit the Federal agencies to administer and evaluate contract programs. Tribal governments or tribal organizations provide the information by submitting Public Law 93–638 contract or grant proposals to the appropriate Federal agency. No third party notification or public disclosure burden is associated with this collection. Approval for the collection expires on February 28, 2010.

The Department of the Interior and the Department of Health and Human Services invite you to submit comments on the proposed renewal, as described below. DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before November 20, 2009.

Request for Comments The BIA and IHS request that you send your comments on this collection to the locations listed in the ADDRESSES section.

Please note that an agency may not sponsor or conduct, and an individual need not respond to, a collection of information unless it has a valid OMB Control Number. It is our policy to make all comments available to the public for review at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section during the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday except for legal holidays. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address or other personally identifiable information, be advised that your entire comment—including your personally identifiable information— may be made public at any time. While you may request that we withhold your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. III. Data OMB Control Number: 1076–0136. Title: Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Contracts, 25 CFR 900. Brief Description of Collection: An Indian tribe or tribal organization may be required to respond from 1 to 12 times per year, depending upon the number of programs they contract from the BIA and IHS. Each response may vary in its length. In addition, each subpart of 25 CFR part 900 concerns different parts of the contracting process. For example, Subpart C relates to provisions of the contents for the initial contract proposal. The burden associated with this would not be used when contracts are renewed. Subpart F describes minimum standards for the management systems used by Indian tribes or tribal organizations under these contracts. Subpart G addresses the negotiability of all reporting and data requirements in the contract. Type of Review: Renewal. Respondents: Federally recognized Indian tribes and tribal organizations.
