Administration of Grant and Contract Schools
Under P.L. 100-297 and P.L. 93-638

Each year, the Bureau of Indian Affairs and other federal agencies provide more than $850 million in funding for tribally operated secondary schools. Along with this funding are the multitude of federal laws and regulations that must be complied with in order to prevent sanctions such as disallowed cost, suspension of payments or cancellation of the grant or contract.

This comprehensive class will remove the mystery behind the requirements and demonstrate in plain language what you are required to do when you manage a grant or contract school.
