Dept of Interior Buy Indian Act Webinar Consultation Sessions

June 17, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

The Buy Indian Act provides Indian Affairs with the authority to set aside procurement contracts for qualified Indian-owned businesses, known as “Indian Economic Enterprises.” Regulations implementing the Act have been in place for more than five years. In that time, several revisions have been identified that would better allow Indian Affairs to realize the full potential of the Buy Indian Act.
The draft revisions would eliminate barriers to Indian Economic Enterprises from competing on certain construction contracts, expand Indian Economic Enterprises’ ability to subcontract construction work consistent with other socio-economic set-aside programs, and give greater preference to Indian Economic Enterprises when a deviation from the Buy Indian Act is necessary, among other updates.

The full text of the draft rule and a summary oft he changes are available .
