A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
A significant accomplishment during the early period of trust reform was the conversion to a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) accounting software system. In March 1998, OST contracted with a commercial vendor to use a version of its trust accounting system that provides basic collection, accounting, investing, disbursing and reporting functions.
TFAS is an accounting and investment system that enables the automated production of account statements for individual Indians and tribal account holders. It replaced a module in BIA 's Integrated Records Management System and two OST systems. TFAS was deployed in August 1998 and was fully operational in May 2000.
TFAS allows automated trade settlements, automated payments of financial asset income, daily securities pricing and automated reconciliation. In addition, landownership and leasing accounts are being included in TFAS as part of BIA's and OST's TAAMS conversion project, to ensure that both systems contain accurate and complete information.
