                 Reporting Under
              Tribal Self-Governance
 There is significantly less reporting under Title
  IV (Tribal Self-Governance) as compared to Title
  I (P.L. 93-638 contracting).
 Mandatory reporting provisions are not included
  in Self-Governance regulations (25 CFR §
  1000).
 Self-Governance Tribes are required to report
  only when it is mandated by statute or
  regulations that have not been waived.

           Reporting Under
        Tribal Self-Governance
 Self-Governance regulations (25 CFR §
  1000 Subpart P—Reports) indicate that
  Self-Governance Tribes have the option to
  provide a summary of the highlights of the
  annual report to Congress and other
  pertinent information it wishes to report.
 Often reporting is tied to a funding
  distribution methodology. While reporting is
  discretionary, in such cases, if the tribe
  does not report it may not be considered for
  funding.

                 Reporting Under
              Tribal Self-Governance
   The ability of Self-Governance and other Tribes
    to receive additional BIA funds in the future is
    dependent on tribal information being available
    to demonstrate how effectively Tribes are using
    BIA funds that they receive.
   To this end, Self-Governance Funding
    Agreements have provisions for reporting of BIA
    program performance management activities
    pursuant to the Government Performance and
    Results Act of 1993 (GPRA).
           Reporting Under
        Tribal Self-Governance
 The BIA requires complex sets of data to
  support budget formulation, funds
  distribution, program management,
  strategic planning, and statutory and
  regulatory reporting processes.
 If Self-Governance and other Tribes do not
  provide the data, it will be difficult for the
  BIA to compete on behalf of the Tribes in
  the budget formulation process for
  increasingly scarce Federal funds.
                 Reporting Under
              Tribal Self-Governance
   Self-Governance Tribes can expect to receive
    requests for the following information:

             Reporting Under
          Tribal Self-Governance
   The continued growth of Tribal Self-
    Governance is dependent upon the ability
    of Self-Governance Tribes and BIA to
    provide to the President, Congress, Tribal
    Leaders, and other interested parties
    objective information on how the BIA funds
    are being used by the Tribes and the
    progress they are making with the use of
    those funds.
           Reporting Under
        Tribal Self-Governance
 In direct response to this need, the Tribal
  Interior Budget Committee (TIBC) has
  established a Data Management
  Committee (DMC) which involves a
  partnership between Tribal and Federal
  representatives to assess statutory and
  regulatory performance data reporting
  requirements and determine other data
  collection needs in Indian Country.
 This assessment takes into account issues
  related to GPRA.
              Reporting Under
           Tribal Self-Governance
 The DMC has initiated a project known as
  the Tribal Data Exchange (TDE) which
  involves the development of a data collection
  and reporting tool that enables timely and
  accurate collection, analyses, reporting and
  delivery of tribal data to fulfill GPRA and
  other regulatory reporting requirements.
 The TDE allows data collection for budget
  formulation, funds distribution, program
  management, and special reports purposes.
       Reporting Under Tribal Self-
              Governance
   The scope of the project includes:
    (a) Collecting performance measures for
    tribal programs;
    (b)Preparing performance measures for
    tribal program from the DMC for use in the
    TDE;
    (c) Preparing hardware and software;
    (d) Transferring data from TDE to an Indian
    Affairs Performance Management System;
          Reporting Under
       Tribal Self-Governance
 (d) Providing reporting capabilities for
  data measures;
 (e) Providing training in the use of the
  system for users and system
  administrators; and
 (f) Providing system documentation and a
  User Guide.
           Reporting Under
        Tribal Self-Governance
 TDE is a tribal system that is currently
  being operated by the Chickasaw Nation.
 The system has the flexibility for tribes to
  collect data for their own purposes as
  well as inter-tribal purposes.
 A tribal demonstration project is being
  used to refine the TDE system which
  should be fully operational in FY 2013.
