As a Developer/Contractor for federal agencies, the Section 106 process is important to learn and understand so you can make sure that all projects are following federal law and not unnecessarily endangering any historic properties. Learning about the process can help make it run smoother, meaning a faster resolution for all parties involved, and it can help find alternatives to any action that might endanger a historic location. This knowledge can help make projects move faster, and be more cost-efficient, and means that you are doing your part to help preserve the USA’s cultural resources.
