IHS Contract Support Cost (CSC) Workgroup

The CSC Workgroup meets to further the federal government’s administration of CSC within the IHS.  The Agency, in active participation with Tribes, has developed a comprehensive CSC policy to implement the statutory provisions of the ISDA.  The IHS CSC workgroup is comprised of Tribal and federal individuals representing each IHS regional office.  Outside of the CSC workgroup, Tribal input is sought through formal consultation.
