This Division is responsible for monitoring the financial management and
accounting practices of the Tribe and Tribal entities. This is done by
developing relationships with other governmental agencies, banks and
lending institutions, investment managers, and insurers. All aspects
relating to budget, technology, insurance, purchasing, investments, and
accounting are found within the Finance Division.
The Accounting Department was created by Ordinance to account for all financial resources and other assets of the Tribe in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). All resources over which the Tribal Council exercises any form of governmental, fiduciary or agency responsibility are accounted for in Tribal accounting records.
The Budget & Treasury department manages the Tribal operating budget. The department also provides financial management and reporting of Federal and State grants and self governance program revenues and expenditures. The Treasury and Investment functions ensure all government and fiduciary funds maintain optimum bank and fund balances and are accounted for according to investment policies established by Tribal Council.
The Procurement Department was created by Ordinance to operate as the central purchasing and contracting office for all Goods and Services purchased, leased or otherwise procured by the Tribe.
