Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies, and Independent Regulatory Agencies: Guidance for Implementing E.O. 13175   [open pdf - 0B]

"On November 5, 2009, President Obama signed a Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies on Tribal Consultation. In this Memorandum, the President emphasized his commitment to 'regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with tribal officials in policy decisions that have tribal implications including, as an initial step, through complete and consistent implementation of Executive Order 13175.' Pursuant to Executive Order 13175, executive departments and agencies are charged with engaging in consultation and collaboration with Indian tribal governments; strengthening the government-to-government relationship between the United States and Indian tribes; and reducing the imposition of unfunded mandates upon Indian tribes. Within the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) has primary responsibility for implementing Executive Order 13175 and the President's Memorandum. To assist in this charge, the OIRA Administrator, Cass R. Sunstein, has prepared the attached guidance."
