Tribal Consultation on Proposed Buy Indian Act Rule

Tribal Consultation on Proposed Buy Indian Act Rule

The Department of the Interior (DOI) has proposed revisions to the regulations implementing the Buy Indian Act. The Buy Indian Act provides DOI with the authority to set aside procurement contracts for Indian-owned and controlled businesses. The revisions would eliminate the restriction on Indian Economic Enterprises from competing on certain construction contracts issued under the Buy Indian Act, expand Indian Economic Enterprises’ ability to subcontract work subject to Buy Indian Act, reduce the potential for fraud and abuse of acquisitions subject to the Buy Indian Act, and give greater preference to Indian Economic Enterprises when a deviation from the Buy Indian Act is necessary, among other updates.

The proposed rule is available here.

Date/Time: December 1, 2021 from 2pm – 4pm ET
