The superintendent is the highest official at Hovenweep National Monument, in charge of managing all park staff and operations.
The administration division manages budget, contracting, concessions and permits, human resources, park planning, property management, telecommunications, and information technology. Some administration functions are managed at the park; others operate in our administrative office south of Moab, Utah.
The Facilities Management division operates and maintains roads, trails, buildings, utilities, vehicles, and grounds. We ensure public safety in facilities. We also manage many building and rehabilitation projects attached to park facilities.

The interpretation and visitor services division manages entrance stations and fee collection; the park's volunteer program; and signs, exhibits, and websites. Park rangers in this division also present guided walks, talks, hikes, evening programs, educational activities, and other special programs.

The resource stewardship and science division studies, inventories, and monitors a wide range of park resources, including cultural sites and structures, geological features, vegetation, wildlife, water, and air quality. We also manage the park's archives and museum collections.
