Why I Should Attend?
Pub. L. 93-638 authorizes three types of contracts/compact agreements: (1) Non-Construction Contracts; and (2) Construction Contracts under Subpart J of the regulations; and (3) Self-Governance Compacts. Self-
Determination contracts and Self-Governance Compacts require an Annual Funding Agreement (AFA) that is negotiated each year. AFAs are required to be submitted to the funding agency at least 120 days prior to the ending of the current contract period.
An Annual Funding Agreement (AFA) must describe the Programs, Functions, Services and Activities (PFSAs) that the subject of the contract and compact. It identifies the general budget categories and funds to be provided; and the method of payment; and other provisions that the parties agree to. Unfortunately, current construction of AFAs do not meet the statutory requirements under section 108(f) of the Act. Construction contracts require extensive scopes of work that detail the duties and responsibilities of the construction contractor; and it is a vital part of a construction contract, or can be prepared as an individual document to let the contractor know what he needs to do for the customer. This is included in a construction contract as a Contract Scope of Work (SOW) is a formal agreement document that specifies all the criteria of a contract between a service provider (vendor) and the customer. It clearly documents the project requirements, milestones, deliverables, end products, documents and reports that are expected to be provided by the vendor.
