Technical Assistance

Submitting a Technical Assistance Request

The Social Science Program (SSP) does not have a primary research budget available for agency-wide competition in calling for proposals. As a result, technical assistance requests should be submitted with this in mind. SSP can assist in managing social science projects, prioritizing needs and approaches, developing of research and analysis, and peer review processes.

Submit a STAR request under 'Social Science and Visitor Use.' 

Importantly, SSP manages an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for socioeconomic research and analysis with Resource Systems Group, Inc. This contract provides easy-access for all bureaus within the Department of the Interior to obtain a full array of high quality social science research and analyses, with optional assistance from SSP.  For more information on this, use the contact form and select Social Science as the category.

The documents below have been completed as part of technical assistance to parks, regions, the Department of the Interior, and NPS partners.
