The Bureau or Office should make all reasonable efforts to comply with the expressed views of the affected Tribes regarding the process timeline at this Stage, taking into account the level of impact, the scope, and the complexity of the issues involved in the Departmental Action with Tribal Implications, along with the other factors driving the schedule. The process will be open and transparent. If the Bureau or Office determines that the Administrative Procedure Act or other Federal law or regulation expressly prohibits continued discussion at a specified point in the decision-making process, the Bureau or Office should so inform the Tribes at the outset of this Stage in the process. 3. Implementation of Final Federal Action Stage. In addition to any formal notice required by law or regulation, final decisions on Departmental Action with Tribal Implications should be communicated in writing to affected Tribes, with a summarized explanation of the final decision. A Bureau or Office may consider implementing a post-consultation review process where it is consistent with law, regulations, and EO 13175. Any review process shall not limit the Department’s deliberative process privilege regarding internal considerations or any other applicable privilege. The Bureau or Office at this Stage will consider the need for training or technical assistance. F. Impact of Consultation Guidelines.

Exigent circumstances may allow the Department to take measures that deviate from this Policy, but the Department should make every effort to comply and should explain to Indian Tribes as soon as exigent circumstances arise. VIII. Supplemental Policies Bureaus and Offices, in collaboration with the TGO, are to review existing policies that may be impacted by this Policy. All Bureau and Office policies are to conform to this Policy. Where necessary, a Bureau or Office may VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:21 May 16, 2011 Jkt 223001 develop a new policy in order to conform to this Policy. Consistent with Federal appropriations law, the Department shall develop a policy for consultation with Alaska Native Corporations. The Policy will address when a Department action impacts an Alaska Native Corporation’s interest. The Policy will not conflict with the requirements of this document. The Secretary’s designee will provide a Plan of Action for developing the Alaska Native Corporation consultation policy. Other entities that are not Bureaus or Offices as defined in this Policy may develop policies that conform to this Policy. Other entities may develop such policies in coordination with the TGO. IX. Disclaimer Except to the extent already established by law, this Policy is intended only to improve the internal management of the Department, and is not intended to create any right, benefit, or trust responsibility, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law by a party against the Department or any person. The Department also does not waive any applicable privilege that it may hold by virtue of this Policy. Dated: May 11, 2011. Laura Daniel Davis, Chief of Staff.
