Active Agreement Documents in Nevada

The Nevada SHPO has made every reasonable effort to post most of the executed and still active Programmatic Agreements (PA) and Memoranda of Agreement (MOA) in Nevada.  You may request a copy of any document not listed here by completing and submitting a Public Records request. Helpful information about the preparation of Agreements can be found on the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation's (ACHP) website here.   An ACHP white paper on the types of Agreement Document that can be executed and when they should be used is here.  It is also possible that the Nevada SHPO did not receive the final executed and active document.  In those instances, please contact the appropriate federal agency to obtain a copy.  

Please Note: The SHPO has determined that most, but not all, of the following agreements meet the terms found in NRS 383.121.9(b) and/or NRS 383.710.3(b) for an “existing agreement with a federal agency that was executed pursuant to federal law and that relates to the discovery of prehistoric native Indian human remains or a funerary object.” The SHPO has determined that execution of these documents means that the provisions for notification found in NRS 383.121.3 through NRS 383.121.7 and/or NRS 383.170.1 as amended, do not apply.  Please read the specific documents to determine applicability. 

Please note: agreement documents are negotiated with the SHPO and other consulting parties.  Please do not use any of these documents as a template as each is negotiated to address specific and sometimes unique circumstances.  It is always advisable to contact the SHPO before initiating the development of such a document.  Sending a completed document to any signatory without negotiating its contents is never advisable and may result in delays in the execution of the document.
