 Description of Job:
This position is responsible for being the Intergovernmental Services Unit’s (ISU) lead in conducting environmental reviews for cultural resources found in the built environment. Under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (Section 106), a multi-level review process, this position independently reviews, consults, and provides analytical comments, either written or orally, to lead Federal agencies, state agencies, local governments, or project applicants. The comments provided by this position serve as the official comments of the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO).
Duties and responsibilities:
Independently review and provide technical comments in writing within legally prescribed time limits to federal and state agencies pursuant to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and the Colorado State Register Act.
Independently consult, manage, and monitor complex multi-year project reviews under various environmental laws, including the National Historic Preservation Act and the National Environmental Policy Act.
Independently negotiate with and provide technical assistance to federal and state agencies on various types of agreement documents regarding historic preservation compliance.
Independently monitor, track, review, and approve mitigation measures stipulated in executed agreement documents.
Independently review and provide written comments and technical assistance to federal and state agencies regarding Environmental Impact Statements and other decision documents required by the National Environmental Policy Act.
Research and interpret federal and state laws and regulations in its program areas.
Consult with Native American Tribes in regards to agreement documents and historic preservation laws.
Attend and participate in out-of-office project meetings, including multi-agency meetings, as well as making site visits to project areas to consult under the National Historic Preservation Act, National Environmental Policy Act, and State Register Act with federal and state agencies and the public in regards to historic preservation compliance issues and concerns.
Make presentations and train federal and state agency staff, consulting parties and the public regarding historic preservation compliance responsibilities.
Provide comment and technical assistance to national preservation organizations, such as the National Council of State Historic Preservation Officers, Preservation Action, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
The ISU workload for this position is extremely heavy and also made more difficult by the federally prescribed review time frames. A non-response by this position could cause severe environmental review problems for the State Historic Preservation Officer. In order to meet this challenge, this position must successfully function within the challenge of balancing between understanding when enough cultural resource technical information has been received to make a meaningful decision under Section 106 and the federally prescribed review time frames.
The right candidate must form and present strong rational decisions making to Federal agencies in order to positively influence the cultural resource review process.
 Minimum Qualifications, Substitutions, Conditions of Employment & Appeal Rights:
Minimum qualifications:
The successful candidate will possess a Master's degree in History, Architectural History, or a closely related field and a minimum of two years experience in a similar work setting. Another related degree will be accepted that meets the Secretary of the Interior's Standard and Guidelines.
