Agreements Handbook Final Draft Version 6

As an agency of the Federal Government, the National Park Service (NPS) has the authority to enter into agreements and is responsible for ensuring that all agreements are managed responsibly and in accordance with law and regulations. Agreements allow the NPS to work cooperatively with other federal, state, nonprofit, not-for-profit, and for-profit organizations to further the NPS mission. The goal of the NPS Agreements Handbook, which supplements Director Order 20, is to provide detailed guidance to all who have a role in the development, administration, and closeout of agreements such as cooperative agreements, interagency acquisition agreements, and other types of agreements. The NPS has limited grant authority for specific programs; therefore, guidance on this topic is excluded from this handbook.
