Cultural and Archaeological Resource Compliance

The Cultural Resource Management Group assists the Administration in complying with Utah code, which requires state agencies to consider the effects on historic and archaeological resources within project areas.

The archaeological staff offers technical expertise to the Administration to demonstrate statutory compliance for surface sales, easements, leases, and exchanges. The Cultural Resource Management Group collaborates with other state and federal agencies to develop cost-effective, efficient solutions to common challenges and problems, such as wildfire rehabilitation.

FIELDWORK AUTHORIZATION REQUIREMENT: The agency requires written fieldwork authorization prior to conducting archaeological investigations on trust lands. Please find the links to the fillable pdf form and the memo outlining the system and other requirements for working on trust lands below.
