CHRIS Modernization and Sustainability Plan
The California Historical Resources Information System has developed a CHRIS Modernization and Sustainability Plan to guide efforts to digitize the CHRIS inventory and create a sustainable business model for the CHRIS. We are presenting the plan here in draft form in order to solicit feedback from CHRIS customers and stakeholders. Please send your comments about the draft plan to CHRIS Coordinator Eric Allison at Eric.Allison@parks.ca.gov by June 17, 2013. After comments are received, we will be finalizing the plan and developing a related Action Plan for efforts to be undertaken over the next 18 months.

For California State Agencies: Consultation Under PRC 5024 and 5024.5
The Office of Historic Preservation has created a new informational document with recommendations to assist state agencies in complying with the requirements of Public Resources Code § 5024 and 5024.5 and understanding the expectations of the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) regarding consultation on state projects that may affect historical resources. Ideally, this guidance will help minimize time and effort spent preparing submittals to the SHPO. Consultation documents that do not meet the guidance detailed in this document may generate inquiries for further information, delaying conclusion of the consultation.

The California Office of Historic Preservation (OHP) administers state and federal historic preservation programs and provides technical assistance to federal, state, and local government agencies, organizations, and the general public with regard to historic preservation programs designed to identify, evaluate, register, and protect California's historic resources.
OHP also serves as staff to the State Historical Resources Commission (SHRC), a state review board appointed by the governor, which is responsible for reviewing nominations to the four federal and state registration programs administered by OHP.
Created by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, OHP is funded by an annual grant from the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) administered by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior, with matching funds from the State of California. The HPF is funded by Outer Continental Shelf oil lease revenues.
The mission of the Office of Historic Preservation (OHP) and the State Historical Resources Commission (SHRC) is to provide leadership and promote the preservation of California's irreplaceable and diverse cultural heritage.
