The purpose of the institutional control excavation notification is to notify the Navy of intrusive or excavation projects that will be performed on institutional control sites. After the Navy reviews the request, the original request will be returned to the requester, approved or disapproved, as appropriate. The Navy will retain a copy.

If an IC Excavation notification extension is necessary, the requester shall contact the Navy at 1-866-239-1219 one-week before the current IC Excavation notification expires to request an extension.
