At Interior, we have Tribal Liaison Officers (TLOs). The TLOs are one or more people designated by their bureau or office to carry out the responsibilities outlined in the Interior consultation policy. TLOs work to strengthen the government-to-government relationship with Tribes throughout the United States. In cases where there is no designated TLO, an alternative point of contact is listed below.
