(1) Surveys funded by the society shall be conducted by principal investigators who meet the minimum professional qualifications specified for the appropriate discipline by the National Park Service in 36 CFR, Part 61, April 13, 1984, and August 30, 1985. The same standards are recommended for investigators in projects not funded by the society.

Persons or firms interested in being listed may apply by submitting a resume and other materials describing their qualifications to the staff. The staff shall review the qualifications and inform the applicant of the outcome of the review within 30 working days of submittal of complete documentation. Printed lists of qualified consultants shall be issued annually on January 15.

The society may reject all proposals; request some bidders to submit best and final offers in 15 working days; or award the contract. Awards shall be made to the offeror whose proposal is deemed to be the most advantageous to the state of Iowa on the basis of price and other factors.
