In 1991, the Office of the State Archaeologist initiated the General Contracts
Program (GCP) to provide quality consulting services to public and private
sector clients requesting expertise in cultural resource management (CRM)
archaeology and related studies. The GCP director is Melody K. Pope, who can be reached at 319-384-0724 and at email@example.com.
We have to-date completed more than 800
projects for a broad spectrum of clients and sponsors. The GCP has a proven
record of writing high quality reports with projects consistently completed
on schedule and within budget. In the past three years, individual GCP
projects have ranged in cost from less than $500 to over $1,000,000.

in the Midwest and Plains.

information on the key personnel that the General Contracts Program
can commit to lead cultural resource investigations. Additional field
supervisors, field assistants, and laboratory analysts are hired on
a specific project-hourly basis. This is a typical practice for our
program—we have up-to-date “crew books” maintained
for rapid project start-up.
