There is a dangerous misconception that tribal governments are exempt from having to follow the uniform guidance because, instead, they follow the statutes or regulations of their funding agencies.

Tribal governments, however, are not 100% exempt.  For instance: In areas like audit requirements, Appendix V and Appendix VII, thinking you’re exempt could expose you to costly enforcement actions.  Plus, even when exemptions are available under Uniform Guidance, similar requirements may be in force under the ISDEAA—and tribal governments are not exempt from complying with those.

Clearly, having a basic understanding of how exemptions apply under the Uniform Guidance will help tribal governments and those who work with them better manage their grants.  Let an expert show you what you need to know.
