Progress in Addressing Recommendations
Infrastructure Task Force: Responses to 2011 Streamlining Opportunities Report
In spring 2018, the Tribal Infrastructure Task Force (ITF) federal partners were asked to respond to a GAO evaluation titled: "Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure: Opportunities Exist to Enhance Federal Agency Needs Assessment and Coordination on Tribal Projects" (GAO-18-309). The document provides reccomendations and efforts that ITF partner agencies have initiated since 2011 to enhance coordination among the federal partners, as well as to streamline and simplify the way water infrastructure is financed and built with Native Americans and Alaska Native Village communities. Some activities are complete; others are ongoing.
