Tribal Systems

Tribes that choose to operate an automated data processing system by implementing an Intergovernmental Agreement, using the Model Tribal System, or joining a consortium must submit an Advance Planning Document (APD) to obtain federal funding for installation-related costs.  OCSE offers templates, tools, advice and technical assistance to tribes as they prepare their APDs.

Tribal Advance Planning Document (APD) Process

You must have an APD to seek federal funding to install the Model Tribal System (MTS), a state system, another tribal system, or to make improvements to your installed copy of the system.
