Lawrence S. Roberts today issued an updated Contract Support Costs (CSC) Policy for the Indian Affairs Manual (IAM). The updated Policy reflects extensive tribal consultation and the work of the Bureau of Indian Affairs’ (BIA) CSC Workgroup, which is comprised of tribal and federal experts.
The updated Policy provides for the full payment of CSC and helps ensure that the payment of CSC is accurate, timely, and meets 100 percent of a tribe’s CSC need as calculated under the Policy. The Policy also simplifies and streamlines CSC calculation to expedite payment.
