U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Kansas City District archaeological collections were brought to the Veterans Curation Program’s (VCP) St. Louis laboratory on September 11, 2011. The St. Louis VCP laboratory is a USACE, St. Louis District’s Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections program which is staffed through a contract with Statistical Research, Inc., a cultural resource management firm with offices throughout the western United States.

The procedures employed to re-house the archaeological material from the Blue Springs Lake Project 1983–1985 investigation are discussed below and follow those procedures utilized by the St. Louis VCP laboratory. In the re-housing process of each investigative effort of the USACE, Kansas City District collection, the same standard procedures and Fort Osage Education Center (Fort Osage) guidelines were followed. Upon completion of the curation management project, the collection was sent to Fort Osage for permanent curation.
