11 Road Maintenance Program: Percentage of BIA-Owned Roads in Acceptable Condition [FY 2008 – FY 2010 Q1] Less than 15% of BIA-owned roads are in acceptable condition – compared to 81% nationally Many BIA-owned roads not designed to high standards (e.g., currently gravel and dirt roads) Priorities for maintaining federal roads are at the discretion of Tribes $142 million in ARRA funding is expected to add 200-300 miles of road in acceptable condition FY 2010 Q1 has shown marked improvement
12 Law Enforcement Program: Violent Crime per 100,000 [FY 2008 – FY 2010 Q1] Violent crime is seasonal - peaks in summer months Crime rate has trended upward - from 419 per thousand in FY 2007 to 479 in FY 2009 Violent crime in FY 2010 Q1 dropped significantly from FY 2009 Q1 partly to the Safe Communities Initiative DOI’s high priority goal is to reduce violent crime on selected reservations by 5% in two years FY 2010 – 2012 violent crime rate is expected to decline by 10% as vacancies are filled at a faster rate and with additional funding for increased FBI presence in Indian Country
13 Probate Program: Estates Closed [FY 2008 – FY 2010 Q1] Ongoing goal is to close over 90% of all estates cleared by the Office of Hearings and Appeals Continuing resolutions in FY 2008 and FY 2009 slowed the hiring rate for contract workers 90% of estates were closed in FY 09 despite a case workload that almost doubled from 4,500 to 8,901. Standardization and streamlining of business processes has enabled Office of Trust Services to maintain a high percent of case closings.
14 Forestry Program: Allowable Harvest Offered for Sale [FY 2008 – FY 2010 Q1] Depressed housing market has decreased demand for and the prices paid for forest products Decline in demand resulted in a 44% decline between FY 2007 and FY 2009 Performance will not improve until housing market rebounds BIA partnership with Intertribal Timber Council will explore potential niche market for forest products May need to broaden the concept of “forest products” to capitalize on “biomass” available from harvesting. May have a stronger demand in an energy-conscious, green environment.
15 Bureau of Indian Education: Adequate Yearly Progress [FY 2008 – FY 2010 Q1] Only annual data are reported on this performance measure Percent of schools making AYP dropped from 32% to 24% in SY 2007-2008 The decline occurred because reading and proficiency standards were raised in 21 of the 23 states where BIA schools are funded BIE intensive efforts in enhanced reading and math programs should increase percentages of schools making AYP to 44% by SY 2012
