News and Events
The Archaeological Research Center (Center) has completed updates to the Supplemental Guide for Submitting Reports and Data. These updates outline specifications on the types of data required for complete submittal of cultural resources project data and reports, including a list of required materials for a project to be considered complete. Please note that the Center no longer accepts email submissions of any kind. All materials, with the exception of required hard copies, must be provided to the Center on a DVD or flash drive. A link to the updated guide can be found on the Resources and Fees page.
The Archaeological Research Center (Center) is no longer processing the Traditional Cultural Properties (TCP) site form. The form is still available for use, as contractors and cultural resources investigators see appropriate. Questions regarding the documentation of TCPs on Tribal lands in South Dakota should be directed to the appropriate Tribal Historic Preservation Office or to the State Historic Preservation Office to ensure the TCP forms and associated data are submitted to their standards as part of the review and compliance process.
We have updated our ARMS User License Agreement. If you have access to ARMS online already, you should have received a copy of the new agreement. If you are new to ARMS, you can find a copy of the agreement here. Please review, sign, and submit to our Accounting Assistant, Holly Phillips (Holly.Phillips@state.sd.us).
