Omaha Tribe mismanaged $13.9 million in federal flood-assistance grants, audit finds


December 7, 2017

LINCOLN — A recent audit slammed the Omaha Tribe for mismanaging $13.9 million in federal flood-assistance grants, and for “contracting with itself” to generate “artificial profits” that covered its required matching funds.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General said that the tribe’s accounting and record-keeping were so “unreliable and in such disarray” that it should receive no further funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency until it can show that repair work was done and done at a reasonable price.
