Comments are invited on the second draft of an IfA Standard and guidance for archaeological advice and procurement of archaeological services. The document was originally developed by a working group consisting of IfA staff and consultants from a range of different backgrounds and comments have been incorporated from a first round consultation earlier this year. The Standard and guidance aims to address issues of ethics, quality and consistency in the provision of archaeological advice on a consultancy basis and in the procurement of archaeological services. It does not apply to advice given by planning archaeologists working for or on behalf of local government historic environment services which is covered by a separate Standard and guidance. Comments from this consultation will be incorporated into a revised draft which will be proposed for interim adoption at the IfA’s AGM in October 2013.
The closing date for the consultation is 5pm on Friday 28 June 2013.
