Update on Contract Support Costs
Posted on the IHS Director's Blog on January 15, 2013

Today I am sending an update to Tribes on Contract Support Costs (CSC) as a follow-up to my September 24, 2012, letter to Tribes. The focus of the letter is to reassure Tribes that IHS has been moving forward in its implementation of the recent Supreme Court decision, that we are working on making our CSC claims process more efficient, and that we have scheduled a meeting with over 20 lawyers representing Tribes to hear proposed strategies to continue moving forward on this important issue. Here is a copy of the letter [Link to IHS PDF - 62K].
