Dr. McManamon has been involved in the development of policy, regulations, and guidance for public archaeology in National Park system and throughout the government. He has special interests and expertise in archaeological resource management, the long-term access to and preservation of archaeological data, laws and regulations related to cultural resource management and historic preservation, and public outreach and education about archaeology and archaeological resources.

He represented the DoI in providing technical assistance for the Kennewick Man case and provided archaeological advice for the General Services Administration on the New York City African Burial Ground project. He served as an expert member of the United States delegations to UNESCO negotiations on illegal artifact trafficking and the protection of underwater archeological resources.
