SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Energy Policy Act of 2005, 25 U.S.C. 3503 authorizes the 
Secretary of the Interior to approve individual Tribal Energy Resource 
Agreements (TERAs). The intent of these agreements is to promote tribal 
oversight and management of energy and mineral resource development on 
tribal lands and further the goal of Indian self-determination. A TERA 
offers a tribe an alternative for developing energy-related business 
agreements and awarding leases and granting rights-of-way for energy 
facilities without having to obtain further approval from the 
Secretary.
    This information collection conducted under TERA regulations at 25 
CFR 224 will allow IEED to determine the capacity of tribes to manage 
the development of energy resources on tribal lands. Information 
collection:

     Enables IEED to engage in a consultation process with 
tribes that is designed to foster optimal pre-planning of 
development proposals and speed up the review and approval process 
for TERA agreements;
     Provides wide public notice and opportunity for review 
of TERA agreements by the public, industry, and government agencies;
     Ensures that the public has an avenue for review of the 
performance of tribes in implementing a TERA;
     Creates a process for preventing damage to sensitive 
resources as well as ensuring that the public has fully communicated 
with the tribe in the petition process;
     Ensures that a tribe is fully aware of any attempt by 
the Department of the Interior to resume management authority over 
energy resources on tribal lands; and
     Ensures that the tribal government fully endorses any 
relinquishment of a TERA.

II. Request for Comments
