Awarding Officials' & AOTRs' Roles & Responsibilities

Federal Awarding Officials play a vital role in many aspects of contracts awarded under the Indian Self-Determination Act (Pub. L. 93-638), including awarding, administering, monitoring, ensuring proper closeout; and taking remedial action to address contract compliance issues when necessary.  Approving Officials are responsible for addressing pre-award issues such as funding levels, declination issues, etc.  They also must make an important decision whether to invoke a re-assumption of a contracted program. Awarding Officials are responsible for ensuring contract compliance, and ensuring annual audits are conducted and those audit findings are addressed, and issuing determinations and findings; taking appropriate action to address contract compliance issues, and ensure tribes and tribal organizations are provided technical assistance.

The Practicum is a comprehensive course that provides special insight into the authorities, duties, and responsibilities of federal Line Officers and Awarding Officers and their subordinates.  The course provides information on a special federal code of ethics and rules that govern the conduct of awarding officials and their subordinates.  This course is a recommended course for all federal line officers and awarding officials to receive and maintain their annual certification requirements.  This course can also be valuable to tribes that operate programs under Pub. L. 93-638.
