About ACS

Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS), a 40-year-old corporation of the State of Arizona, provides a wide range of cultural resource, environmental planning, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) services. A complete listing of our offerings can be found under the Services tab. Just as some companies retain the names of long-gone founders, ours bears witness to our beginnings as a strictly archaeological firm. For the last 20 years we have been offering environmental services as well, but business development professionals have counseled us to keep our longstanding company name. For all the disciplines in which we work, we collect, analyze, and interpret data to meet the needs of our clients, the requirements of regulatory agencies, and the highest standards of the cultural resource, environmental, and GIS communities. We maintain open communication with our clients and the regulatory community, we strive to accommodate our clients’ project needs, and we create high-quality deliverables that address all the issues the first time.

ACS is certified by the Arizona Unified Certification Program (whose partners include the Arizona Department of Transportation, the City of Phoenix, and the City of Tucson) as a woman-owned small disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE). ACS is self-certified through the Small Business Administration as a woman-owned small business (WOSB) and as an economically disadvantaged woman-owned small business (EDWOSB). We are in our fifteenth year of holding General Services Administration (GSA) contract number GS-10F-0224P under what is now the Professional Services series, and we qualify as a small business under the following NAICS codes:

541620: Environmental Consulting Services,

We are on the Arizona Department of Administration State Procurement Professional Services Contract as well as numerous federal, tribal, state, and local agency and private contracts.

ACS was founded in 1977 and Dr. Margerie Green, currently the sole owner, is one of the founding principals. ACS won a Small Business Development Center Network/Arizona Friends of Small Business Success Award in 2002, a Governor’s Historic Preservation Award and an American Cultural Resource Association Quality Product Award in 2005, and an ADOT DBE Trailblazer Award in 2013. We were listed as one of the top 25 environmental consulting firms in the Phoenix area by the Business Journal when they tracked this category from 2005−2015.
