Through its unique membership, the NMSC will help disseminate information about NPS's historic preservation programs and the significant historic sites in the NPS and throughout the United States that might benefit from the grant programs, through publication and distribution of materials, as well as through seminars, conferences and symposia. The activities and spheres of interest of the NMSC closely coincide with those of the NPS. Equally as important, contracting with a private firm would not permit the NPS to have the level of substantial involvement that it enjoys with the NMSC, involvement that shapes the direction of the NMSC, benefits the conference attendees, and utilizes the skills of NPS staff in the fulfillment of the task agreement. STATUTORY AUTHORITY 16 U.S.C. 1g, NPS authority to enter into cooperative agreements and transfer appropriated funds to nonprofit organization for the public purpose of NPS programs. 16 U.S.C. 470, National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).
