The Permian Basin Programmatic Agreement (PA) is an alternative form of Section 106 compliance offered mainly to the oil and gas industry in southeastern New Mexico for projects located on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land. Proponents of projects within the PA area may contribute to a dedicated archaeological research fund in lieu of contracting for project specific archaeological surveys, provided their proposed projects avoid recorded archaeological sites. Dedicated funding goes toward research on the archaeology and history of southeastern New Mexico. The PA calls for the consulting parties to evaluate its effectiveness during its seventh year of implementation. As a result of that recent evaluation in May 2015, the PA will be extended for 10 additional years. We discuss the reasons for the PA, successes and missteps during its first seven years, and ways that the Permian Basin PA might be used as a model elsewhere.

El Acuerdo Programático (PA) de la Cuenca Permian es una forma alternativa del cumplimento de normas de la Sección 106 que se ofrece principalmente a la industria del petróleo y gas en el sureste de Nuevo México para los proyectos localizados dentro de los terrenos de la Oficina de Administración de Tierras (Bureau of Land Management). Defensores de los proyectos dentro del área PA podrían contribuir a un fondo dedicado a la investigación arqueológica en lugar de contratar personal para realizar recorridos arqueológicos de proyectos específicos, mientras que estos proyectos eviten sitios arqueológicos ya registrados. Esta financiación se dirige hacia la investigación arqueológica e histórica del sureste de Nuevo México. El PA hace un llamado a las partes consultoras para evaluar su efectividad durante su séptimo año de implementación. Como resultado de esta reciente evaluación en Mayo del 2015, el PA se extenderá diez años adicionales. Discutimos las razones del PA, sus éxitos y tropiezos durante sus primeros siete años y las maneras en las que el PA de la Cuenca Permian podría ser utilizado como modelo en otros lugares.
