COVID-19 Procedures as of September 9, 2020
Submission of Section 106 Projects (Version 3.0)
In the wake of COVID-19, the University of Oklahoma (OU) has implemented procedures geared toward ensuring a safe, healthy campus environment. Our office remains closed to non-OU staff; however, OAS is now receiving regular deliveries from Central Mail and other delivery services. Please read and follow the updated instructions below regarding the submission of projects that are subject to compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). Adhering to this guidance will facilitate the review process.
Standard Submission Process
We are again able to receive deliveries directly to our office (e.g., FedEx, UPS, or similar) and through OU central mail via USPS. If able, we ask that applicants/agencies submit projects via hard-copy format as per our usual procedures:
If an agency/applicant is unable to submit a project in hard-copy format, we will continue to receive and review project submissions electronically (please see steps below).
Electronic Submission Process
Compile your submission documents for review according to our standard guidance, including a cover letter.
o Please indicate the appropriate point of contact to whom the OAS response should be issued in the cover letter.
o Combine files into a single document—preferably PDF format.
o Name the file using the following formula: agency initials_project name_county.pdf
Provided the file size is less than 35 Mb, you may send the submission attached to an email to email@example.com.
o Please indicate the type of submission in the Subject line: Initial Submission; Report Submission; ODEQ-FEMA Submission; ODOT Project; ODOT utility file search; or Other.
If the file size is larger than 35Mb, please contact Kary Stackelbeck (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make arrangements for an alternative method of delivery.
Applicants/agencies who submit reports electronically will be asked to supply a hard-copy of those documents at a later date as they are able to do so. In such instances, please attach a completed version of the Hard-Copy Submittal Form.
