I. Abstract

    Representatives of the BIA seeks renewal of the approval for 
information collections conducted under their joint rule, 25 CFR part 
900, implementing the Indian Self-Determination and Education 
Assistance Act (ISDEAA), as amended (25 U.S.C. 450 et seq.). The Act 
requires a joint rule at 25 CFR part 900 to govern how contracts 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). The joint rule was 
developed through negotiated rulemaking with Tribes in 1996 and 
governs, among other things, what must be included in a Tribe's initial 
ISDEAA contract proposal to the BIA.

of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including 
the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection 
of the information on the respondents.
    Please note that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and an 
individual need not respond to, a collection of information unless it 
has a valid OMB Control Number.
    It is BIA's policy to make all comments available to the public for 
review at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section. Before 
including your address, phone number, email address or other personally 
identifiable information in your comment, you should be aware that your 
entire comment--including your personal identifying information--may be

review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
