›› To increase and improve their partnership to identify and evaluate historic properties, CBP and GSA (which manages the majority of CBP property leases) executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that addresses consistent goals, principles, and guidance where there is a GSA and CBP shared interest as real property owner, manager, lessee, occupant, or service provider. The MOU specifically: • Clarifies roles and responsibilities for both agencies and establishes which agency is the lead agency for Section 106 compliance;
• Avoids duplication of efforts for consultations and surveys; and
• Reduces project timelines and costs.
›› The U.S. International Boundary Water Commission (USIBWC) maintains several Memoranda of Understanding with the National Park Service (NPS) (for park units along the U.S.-Mexico border, including Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park and Chamizal National Memorial), USFS, Texas A&M International University, and Sul Ross State University, to establish roles and responsibilities regarding monitoring effects to historic properties, discoveries of historic properties, training, and geospatial data sharing.
