Tribal Government's Consultation Committee
I. PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The Tribal Government's Consultation Committee (TGCC) was established in April, 1990 for the purpose of tribal consultation to the CRIHB Board of Director's on P.L. 93-638 tribal contracting issues. Further, the Tribal Government's Consultation Committee was established for purposes of clarifying broad policy and/or assessing specific problems, evaluating efforts to solve them, and recommending to the Board of Director's solutions in response to the problems. The Tribal Government's Consultation Committee serves to increase tribal access to the decision-making process, thereby expanding interest, participation in, and understanding of tribal health issues.

The term of TGCC members shall be in accordance with Tribal Law and Tribal elections. The official designee shall be seated on behalf of the elected representative upon submission of written notice from the Tribe's elected Chairperson.
Tribes not under subcontract may participate at their own expense in all matters before the Committee except subcontract related issues.
The Chairperson shall be elected by the TGCC at the CRIHB annual meeting in October. The Chairperson shall serve a term of 1 year. In the absence of the elected Chairperson, the TGCC Chairpersons shall select a Chairperson from the Chairpersons present to conduct the meeting.
The quorum is established by the number of tribal representatives present.
