Working With Professional Vendors for Prompt Results

The Housing Development Department at the Absentee Shawnee Housing Authority works very hard to provide quality service to our communities by using skilled, professional vendors, specifications of work that are detailed and thorough so that jobs can be easily understood and promptly completed, as well as performing on-site inspections daily to ensure quality delivery of services. We appreciate our contractors and vendors and know that we can’t achieve our goals without them so all our contracts and agreements provide payments for services with 10 business days. 

We give Indian Preference to Native American owned companies according to Section 7 (b) of the Indian Self-Determination Act (25 U.S.C. 450 e (b)) to all contracts in excess of $10,000.00 and adhere to strict ethical standards in contracting; including but not limited to No Conflict of Interests, Equal Employment Opportunities, Safety Standards, No use of Suspended or Debarred Parties, Clean Air Act, Byrd Anti Lobbying Amendment, and the Davis/Bacon Wage Act.
