Sociocultural Systems

The Sociocultural Systems department collaboratively assists an array of federal agencies in meeting, and exceeding, federal compliance requirements, enhancing land stewardship, and building community relationships.

Our applied science approach leverages state-of-the-art technologies, quantitative and qualitative analyses, social science best practices, and environmental policy to address and mitigate the social and environmental impacts of federal actions at local and regional scales. Our staff work with agencies to identify, evaluate, and protect important cultural resources; assist in the identification of concerns raised by communities and Tribal Nations; and analyze and assess environmental justice, socio-economic, and environmental policy issues. While protecting sensitive data and upholding high ethical standards, we develop innovative solutions by combining critical staff analysis with robust public engagement.
