Fee Delivery Mechanisms
There are several ways that Federal clients can work with the MAC Lab to initiate a partnership and pay fees:
The MAC Lab accepts credit cards and checks payable to "Maryland Department of Planning/JPPM".

To initiate a Federal Curation partnership with the MAC Lab or get a quote for services, contact the Curator of Federal Collections, Sara Rivers Cofield at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-586-8589.
