This would include developing claims for unpaid contract support costs, entering into settlement negotiations with IHS and, if necessary, making recommendations to the Attorney General for litigation of those claims if a negotiated settlement cannot be reached. Qualifications include experience in and knowledge of Federal Indian law, especially the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (ISDEAA), P.L. 93-638, as amended, and experience filing claims for payment of contract support costs pursuant to the ISDEAA.
