ISAS General Burial Notification Protocol
MOA in place for the Mitigation of Euro-American Traditions Sites
This has been and extensive process that John and Brad have been pursuing for at least two years. It essentially gets us back to the process we had several years ago before everything was put on hold by the FHWA review. This will facilitate our work on these types of sites. Please read the attached document - my understanding is that it goes into effect as of the date of signature. Field Station Coordinators and Statewide surveyors need to understand and begin to implement this process.
NEW Protocol for communicating with outside agencies, etc.
Statewide ISAS and district personnel:
Recently we have had a number of unfortunate incidents of contacts between district surveyors and other field personnel with various private individuals, organizations, tribes, and agencies that indicate that there is a misunderstanding of basic protocol in conducting such communications. In all of the specific instances that I am aware of these inappropriate communications directly stem from ISAS staff attempts to be helpful, cooperative, and to facilitate the process -- all good intentions that can have very negative impacts on the IDOT-ISAS relationship that is the heart of our program. In each case the problem came from the ISAS staffer not recognizing that they did not have the responsibility, the authority, or the authorization from superiors to be involved in that conversation.
