SHPO Guidance for Archaeological Surveys
All State Historic Preservation Offices (SHPOs) vary in the execution of their review responsibilities under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and state cultural resource management laws. This guidance is intended to assist government agencies, consultants, and applicants in providing the South Carolina SHPO with sufficient information to carry out their primary review responsibilities. The following information is not meant to replace or detract from the guidance found in the South Carolina Standards and Guidelines for Archaeological Investigations. Adherence to the Standards and Guidelines is still the most effective approach for ensuring timely review and avoiding frustrating requests for additional information.
