Failure for obtaining this supervisor approval will result in termination of the contract. An individual who is a current employee of the Tribe must punch out when applying to be a Tribal Monitor or when completing Tribal Monitoring work.  

Notification of Tribal Monitoring Contracting will be sent by the Human Resources Department via email to the Tribal internal email system for Programs and Businesses to post in all Community public areas. Notification will also be sent to the Tribal Web-site, as well as, other social media outlets such as, Tribal Newsletters and Facebook Bad River Community Posting Board to notify individuals who may meet the standards and conditions of a Tribal Monitor that the selection and contracting process is open for their consideration.

Tribal Monitors meeting the standards and conditions described in Section 1 will be selected for contracting upon joint approval of the Human Resources Manager, THPO and the Bad River Natural Resource Department (NRD) Director, in accordance with the Tribal Procurement Policy #150; Selection (v.). A maximum of twenty (20) qualified Tribal Monitors will be contracted. Any remaining qualified Tribal Monitors will be placed on a waiting list and will be contracted if necessary.

All Tribal Monitors will be required to complete the initial drug test regardless of if they have completed a drug test recently as an employee of the Tribe. THPO will cover the costs of the random and periodic drug testing that will be required.

Should the individual refuse to authorize for the drug test, or, be found to be using a device to alter their drug test, they will be immediately removed from consideration for contracting. The individual can, however, be considered for contracting at a later date should they provide the authority to subject themselves to drug testing, at a later date, but still within the same fiscal year.

  1. VI.CONTRACTING:
  2. VII.TRACKING TRIBAL MONITOR CONTRACT EXPENDITURES:

After discussion of the terms of the vendors contract, and upon receipt of a passing drug test from the Bad River Lab, a recommendation to contract will be decided upon between the THPO, Human Resources Manager, and NRD Director, and contracts will be drawn up and executed by all parties involved and reviewed by the Legal Department, prior to acquiring the Tribal Chairman’s authorization.

Once the Tribal Chairman’s authorization is acquired, the contract is scanned by Accounting Procurement staff and returned to the THPO Office for implementation. A digital and hard copy of the Contract is kept by the THPO Office and secured within their locked central file, a digital copy is kept by the NRD Administrative Assistant, to be stored in a secure computer location and made visible only to the NRD Administrative Assistant and NRD Director.

HIPAA regulatory authority is adhered by all parties responsible for the storage and viewing of contract files.

When the contract terms are fulfilled, or the Purchase Order price has been reached, the contract will be considered fulfilled and terminated. The THPO will then be responsible for developing the Vendor Evaluation Sheet for review by Accounting Procurement staff, prior to issuance of the final payment.

Once contracted, Tribal Monitors may be re-contracted within a fiscal year, provided they do not receive a poor performance indicated in the final Vendor Performance Evaluation Form.

Poor performance during the course of a contract term can also be reason to terminate a Tribal Monitor Contract. Upon termination of a contract for any reason, the final payment will be withheld until the THPO completes the Vendor Performance Evaluation Form.

The Vendor and Bad River staff are both responsible for tracking contract expenditures. THPO staff will develop a satellite account to monitor the spending for each Tribal Monitor and document the costs for each job, for billing and recoupment purposes. Tribal Monitors will not be compensated for exceeding the terms or costs of the contract. Notification from the THPO Office shall be given to the Vendor when approaching the final $1,000 remaining in the Contract. Work hours and applicable mileage, per diem and lodging will not be scheduled to exceed the terms and price of the contract.

Each column represents separate jobs that the Monitor works on to enable easy invoicing for recoupment of expenses. It also recognizes whether a Monitor has worked multiple sites in one week.
