“The administration will fully fund contract support costs for federally-recognized tribes in 2014,” said a White House official. “Last fall’s FY 2014 continuing resolution funded the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and the Indian Health Service (IHS) contract support costs at the agencies' estimates of full costs. Based on the funding provided in the FY 2014 omnibus, which was enacted in January, both BIA and IHS will fund CSCs at the agencies’ estimates of full costs.

“The administration is working with BIA and IHS to develop a long-term accounting and budget strategy to address CSCs in consultation with tribes,” the White House official added.
