ABSTRACT
During his visit to the Oglala Sioux Tribe in South Dakota in July 1999, the President stressed the need for economic empowerment among Native Americans. The historic visit was another step--the first was the passage of the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act of 1975--toward recognizing the potential for tribes' self-determination through economic development. The act gives tribes the opportunity to manage federal Indian programs and provides funds to cover their costs of contract management and administration. This testimony discusses (1) the extent of, and the reasons for, increases in contract support costs in recent years and (2) four alternatives for funding these costs.
