The Consultation Toolkit consists of a sample consultation protocol template, a sample consultation flow chart, and a list of best practices for consultation. These documents were created using tribal, state, and federal consultation policies to cover a range of protocols, statutes, and timelines. These documents are meant to be used by tribes as a starting point that they can then tailor to meet their specific needs.
