Think Local - How Procurement Compliance & Buying Indian Can Work Well Together
October 2 | 11:10 a.m. – 12:25 p.m.
Finance & Capital
It is important to understand how procurement impacts your tribe’s financial performance and can support building a strong tribal community. By purchasing from locally-owned businesses, a tribe in turn supports its own economy. But how do we do this while still complying with federal funding rules? This how-to session blends grant compliance with procurement in a tribal government world. Attendees will benefit from the advice from speakers on purchasing under grants, when it is okay to use Indian preference or the tribe’s TERO office, when it is best to put contracts out to bid, and when the tribe can use non-competitive selections.
