The OSA protects endangered archaeological sites on private or public lands through enforcement of the North Carolina Archaeological Resources Protection Act , the Unmarked Human Burial and Human Skeletal Remains Protection Act , the North Carolina Archaeological Record Program , and the "Abandoned Shipwreck Law".

The OSA works closely with private citizens, local governmental bodies and law enforcement officials, and state agencies like the N.C. Department of Transportation, Commission of Indian Affairs and the Division of State Parks and Recreation. Protection of archaeological sites by easements and tax incentives is actively encouraged by the OSA, as are cooperative efforts through the federally sponsored Certified Local Governments program.
