consultants to design and develop a comprehensive method for Taala Fund to identify desired
impacts and measurements, collect measurement data, and analyze, measure and report the

Performance measurement and improvement are systematic processes by which an
organization continuously and consistently tracks and applies important program and
operations data for the purpose of optimizing its ability to efficiently and effectively advance its
desired social impact. The most powerful performance measurement systems are typically a
core responsibility of an organization’s own staff, who integrate program, financial and

operational work, to effect change in our communities that we serve.


Taala Fund engages in lending, training, and technical assistance activities. We report these
activities in a quantifiable way to funders, partners, colleagues, and to the communities that we
serve. Taala Fund is certified by the CDFI Fund of the United States Treasury. For certification
and funding purposes, the CDFI Fund requires reports and receives grants from us that includes
key data related to our activities. Specifically, the CDFI Fund has minimum prudent standards
(MPS) from which Taala Fund must report to remain certified as a Native Community
Development Financial Institution. CDFI Fund reports include information provided in the TLR

grants. Funders also require Taala Fund to report data to show community information,
changes in client success, and training/TA provided.


We like to provide information to our communities, colleagues and partners as well. Client
success stories, client overall successes, job and business creation or retention, # of trainings
provided, increase in knowledge, and # of TA services provided are all important.
We are seeking a consultant or consultants to assist Taala Fund to develop a strong
performance and impact measurement system to accurately and consistently track and report
on our clients’ and organization’s measurements of success over time.

Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes Requests Proposals for Tribal Secured Transaction System (TSTS) Study and Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Policy Plan

Proposal Deadline: Proposals will be opened and reviewed on May 24, 2022. Proposal selection will be made on May 26, 2022, and notification will occur by e-mail.

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes’ (CSKT or Tribes) Economic Development Office
requests proposals from qualified consultants to complete a Tribal Secured Transaction System
(TSTS) Study with a proposed Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Policy plan.

The project period for completing the studies and plan will be from May 2022 – October 2022.

Overview: The CSKT are the governing authority for Tribal citizens on the 1.3 million acre
Flathead Indian Reservation in northwest Montana. As part of the Tribes’ economic recovery and
revitalization plan, the CSKT will explore options to establish a TSTS, draft a proposed Uniform
Commercial Code to formalize commercial lending, and create a uniform transaction process
that supports tribally-owned businesses and Tribal consumers. Since the 1970s, the Confederated
Salish and Kootenai Tribes have developed and managed successful lending programs for Tribal
members, Tribal businesses, and Tribal corporations on the Flathead Reservation. The Economic
Development Office and Tribal Legal staff will facilitate the process to expand legal
infrastructure that fosters and promotes economic development on the Reservation.
Tribal Uniform Commercial Codes are statutory laws that define Tribal Secured Transaction
Systems designed to protect both the lender and the consumer through formalized lending
agreements. Uniform Tribal commercial laws and transaction codes help tribes effectively
promote economic development by creating certainty in lending practices and protecting cultural
norms.
Project deliverables include: a situational analysis of current lending transactions; examination of
new lending opportunities; and assessment of the pros and cons of developing CSKT’s own
system, versus utilizing the State of Montana’s lien filing system. Specifically, the expert
consultant will conduct a CSKT Lending Review & Analysis to identify issues related to Tribal
lending programs and propose statutory and judicial infrastructure to develop a secured
transactions system. The consultant will collaborate with Tribal officials to complete a CSKT
Tribal Secured Transactions System and draft appropriate Uniform Commercial Codes (UCC).

How to apply: Proposals must be received by 5:30 p.m. on May 22, 2022. Mailing address: CSKT Economic Development Office, PO Box 278, Pablo, MT 59855, ATTN: Velda Shelby-Sealed Bid.
