Tribal business or enterprises could recover from and adapt to the 
challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Business plans may 
concern goals for economic opportunity and recovery from the impacts of 
the COVID-19 pandemic.

DATES: Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. ET on Monday, June 
27, 2022. OIED will not consider proposals received after this time and

business, or the practicality of a technology, that a Tribe may choose 
to pursue to explore how a current Tribal business or enterprises could 
recover and adapt to the challenges resulting from the COVID-19 
pandemic. NABDI awards may be used to develop business plans for 
eligible applicant's goals for economic opportunity and recovery, such 
as the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The OIED administers 
this program through its Division of Economic Development (DED).
    The funding periods and amounts referenced in this solicitation are 
subject to the availability of non-recurring appropriation funds of the 
BIA budget at the time of award, as well as the Department of the 
Interior (DOI) and Indian Affairs priorities at the time of the award. 
Neither DOI nor Indian Affairs will be held responsible for proposal or 
application preparation costs. Publication of this solicitation does 
not obligate DOI or Indian Affairs to award any specific grant or to 
obligate all or any part of available funds. Future funding is subject 
to the availability of appropriations and cannot be guaranteed. DOI or 
Indian Affairs may cancel or withdraw this solicitation at any time.
    IV. Eligibility for Funding. The Office of the Assistant 
Secretary--Indian Affairs, through OIED, is soliciting proposals from

    X. Incomplete Applications. Incomplete applications will not be 
accepted. Please ensure that all forms listed in the announcement are 
completed and submitted in grants.gov.
    XI. Review and Selection Process. Upon receiving a NABDI 
application, OIED will determine whether the application is complete 
and that the proposed project does not duplicate or overlap previous or 
currently funded OIED technical assistance projects. Any proposal that 
is received after the date and time in the DATES section of this notice 
will not be reviewed.
    The OIED Review Committee, comprised of OIED staff, staff from 
other Federal agencies, and subject matter experts, will evaluate the 
proposals against the ranking criteria. Proposals will be evaluated 
using the four ranking criteria listed below, with a maximum achievable 
total of 100 points.
    Final award selections will be approved by the Assistant 
Secretary--Indian Affairs and the Associate Deputy Secretary, U.S. 
Department of the Interior. Applicants not selected for award will be 
notified in writing.
    XII. Evaluation Criteria.
    Proposals will be formally evaluated by an OIED review committee 
using the five criteria listed below. Each criterion provides a 
percentage of the total maximum rating of 100 points:
    The Project's Economic Benefits: 50 points.
    Project Deliverables: 20 Points.
    Feasibility Process and Analysis: 10 points.
    Costs of Proposal: 10 points.
    Specificity: 10 points.

The Project's Economic Benefits: 50 Points

    The reviewers will determine if the proposal's scope of work 
clearly states the opportunity to be studied. Factors that the 
reviewers will consider when awarding points are, but not limited to:
     Does the proposal describe how the project will 
potentially stimulate economic development?
     Does the proposal describe the benefits the project would 
have if implemented?
     Does the proposal include information how the project will 
reduce joblessness and stimulate economic activity within a Native 
     Does the proposal describe the economic development 
challenges and how the study will address those conditions?
     Does the proposal describe if the applicant has the 
financial resources to conduct the study absent NABDI grant assistance?

Project Deliverables: 20 Points

    The reviewers will determine if the proposal describes in detail 
applicable proposed deliverables. For example, a hotel feasibility 
study would include deliverables such as, but not limited to, site 
analysis, market demographics, drive-time market, regional competition, 
market demands, and a financial model that includes investment and 
return on investment projections.

Project Tasks and Timeline: 10 Points

    The reviewers will determine if a comprehensive timeline has been 
developed to address tasks that are needed to successfully complete the 
objectives outlined in the scope of work.

Costs of Proposal/Budget: 10 Points

    The reviewers will assess the costs listed in the budget to 
determine if the overall value of the project is competitively priced 
and in accordance with the goals stated within the proposal/scope of 

Specificity: 10 Points

    The reviewers understand applicants may retain consultant(s) that 
prepare the NABDI proposal to also conduct the feasibility study if the 
grant is awarded. This does not prejudice an applicant's chances of 
being selected as a grantee. However, the Committee will view 
unfavorably proposals that show little evidence of communication 
between the consultant(s) and the applicant or scant regard for the 
applicant community's unique circumstances. Facsimile applications 
prepared by the same consultant(s) and submitted by multiple applicants 
will receive scrutiny in this regard.
    XIII. Transfer of Funds. OIED's obligation under this solicitation 
is contingent on receipt of congressionally appropriated funds. No 
liability on the part of the U.S. Government for any payment may arise 
until funds are made available to the awarding officer for this grant 
and until the recipient receives notice of such availability, to be 
confirmed in writing by the grant officer.
    All payments under this agreement will be made by electronic funds 
transfer through the ASAP. All award recipients are required to have a 
current and accurate UEI number to receive funds. All payments will be 
deposited to the banking information designated by the applicant in the 
System for Award Management (SAM).
    XIV. Reporting Requirements for Award Recipients. The applicant 
must deliver all products and data required by the Grant Agreement for 
the proposed NABDI feasibility study and

[[Page 24343]]

business plan project to OIED within 30 days of the end of each 
reporting period and 120 days after completion of the project. The 
reporting periods will be established in the terms and conditions of 
the final award.
    OIED requires that deliverable products be provided in digital 
format and submitted in the GrantSolutions system. Reports can be 
provided in either Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat PDF format. 
Spreadsheet data can be provided in Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access, 
or Adobe PDF formats. All vector figures should be converted to PDF 
format. Raster images can be provided in PDF, JPEG, TIFF, or any of the 
Windows metafile formats. The contract between the grantee and the 
consultant conducting the NABDI funded feasibility study must include 
deliverable products and require that the products be prepared in the 
format described above.
    The contract should include budget amounts for all printed and 
digital copies to be delivered in accordance with the grant agreement. 
In addition, the contract must specify that all products generated by a 
consultant belong to the grantee and cannot be released to the public 
without the grantee's written approval. Products include, but are not 
limited to, all reports and technical data obtained, maps, status 
reports, and the final report.
    In addition, this funding opportunity and financial assistance 
award must adhere to the following provisions.
    XV. Conflicts of Interest.


     This section intends to ensure that non-Federal entities 
and their employees take appropriate steps to avoid conflicts of 
interest in their responsibilities under or with respect to Federal 
financial assistance agreements.
     In the procurement of supplies, equipment, construction, 
and services by recipients and by sub-recipients, the conflict of 
interest provisions in 2 CFR 200.318 apply.


     Non-Federal entities must avoid prohibited conflicts of 
interest, including any significant financial interests that could 
cause a reasonable person to question the recipient's ability to 
provide impartial, technically sound, and objective performance under 
or with respect to a Federal financial assistance agreement.
     In addition to any other prohibitions that may apply with 
respect to conflicts of interest, no key official of an actual or 
proposed recipient or sub-recipient, who is substantially involved in 
the proposal or project, may have been a former Federal employee who, 
within the last one (1) year, participated personally and substantially 
in the evaluation, award, or administration of an award with respect to 
that recipient or sub-recipient or in development of the requirement 
leading to the funding announcement.
     No actual or prospective recipient or sub-recipient may 
solicit, obtain, or use non-public information regarding the 
evaluation, award, administration of an award to that recipient or sub-
recipient or the development of a Federal financial assistance 
opportunity that may be of competitive interest to that recipient or 


     Non-Federal entities, including applicants for financial 
assistance awards, must disclose in writing any conflict of interest to 
the DOI awarding agency or pass-through entity in accordance with 2 CFR 
200.112, Conflicts of Interest.
     Recipients must establish internal controls that include, 
at a minimum, procedures to identify, disclose, and mitigate or 
eliminate identified conflicts of interest. The recipient is 
responsible for notifying the Financial Assistance Officer in writing 
of any conflicts of interest that may arise during the life of the 
award, including those that have been reported by sub-recipients.
     Restrictions on Lobbying. Non-Federal entities are 
strictly prohibited from using funds under this grant or cooperative 
agreement for lobbying activities and must provide the required 
certifications and disclosures pursuant to 43 CFR part 18 and 31 U.S.C. 
     Review Procedures. The Financial Assistance Officer will 
examine each conflict of interest disclosure on the basis of its 
particular facts and the nature of the proposed grant or cooperative 
agreement, and will determine whether a significant potential conflict 
exists and, if it does, develop an appropriate means for resolving it.
     Enforcement. Failure to resolve conflicts of interest in a 
manner that satisfies the Government may be cause for termination of 
the award. Failure to make the required disclosures may result in any 
of the remedies described in 2 CFR 200.338, Remedies for Noncompliance, 
including suspension or debarment (see also 2 CFR part 180).
