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.

Or E-mail proposal to velda.shelby@cskt.org.
