Federal Government

CRA is routinely selected as a trusted partner of the federal government, providing technical expertise to agencies across the country in the carrying out of cultural resource obligations under the National Historic Preservation Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards, the Archaeological Resources Protection Act, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, and other such regulations and guidelines. Our multidisciplinary team of historic preservation professionals has extensive experience with managing indefinite delivery contracts and provides the government with the skill set necessary to carry out the most complex projects, from site-specific investigations and Section 106 consultations to nationwide studies and agency-wide programmatic approaches. Representative departments and agencies we have worked with include:

  • Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA)
  • Bureau of Land Management (BLM)
  • Bureau of Reclamation (BOR)
  • Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
  • Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

Importantly, CRA understands the need to carefully follow agency protocols, working within carefully defined roles and responsibilities and adhering to budgetary and scheduling requirements. We prioritize collaboration and flexible solutions designed to meet the government’s needs and obligations, as well as respectful approaches carried out in consideration of any site sensitivities or security requirements. Our commitment to providing cultural resource services of the highest quality and working alongside agencies to provide cost-effective, timely solutions is well known in the federal sector and has served as the foundation for positive working relationships with agencies nationwide.
