    Abstract: The Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance 
Act (ISDEAA) authorizes and directs the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) 
to contract or compact with and fund Indian Tribes and Tribal 
organizations that choose to take over the operation of programs, 
services, functions and activities (PSFAs) that would otherwise be 
operated by the BIA. These PSFAs include programs such as law 
enforcement, social services, and tribal priority allocation programs. 
The contracts and compacts provide the funding that the BIA would have 
otherwise used for its direct operation of the programs had they not 
been contracted or compacted by the Tribe, as authorized by 25 U.S.C. 
450 et. seq.
    Congressional appropriations are divided among BIA and Tribes and 
Tribal organizations to pay for both the BIA's direct operation of 
programs and for the operation of programs by Tribes and Tribal 
organizations through Self-Determination contracts and compacts. The 
regulations implementing ISDEAA are at 25 CFR 900.
    The data is maintained by BIA's Office of Indian Services, Division 
of Self-Determination. The burden hours for this continued collection 
of information are reflected in the Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden 
in this notice.
