Oklahoma decision. The invited grantee and staff will negotiate and implement a Memorandum of Agreement with the USAO to cross designate the tribal prosecutor as a SAUSA and to assess and coordinate decisions on the prosecution of cases under federal laws such as the Major Crimes Act, including a review of pending cases, and develop a system to address future cases.
