Its management is ensured by INRAP in the form of a budget annexed to that of this establishment. However, decisions on the use of appropriations are made by the administrative authority (regional prefectures, Ministry of Culture). The Fund is financed by a levy, set annually by the “administrative authority”, on the proceeds of the preventive archeology fee. This levy can not be less than 30%. In 2004, the FNAP was not set up by INRAP, in charge of its administration, which qualifies it as a “subsidiary budget” (INRAP Annual Report 2005 p.37). Its effective creation dates back to 2005. In 2004, faced with the weakness of the FNAP due to the recent implementation of the RAP (preventive archeology fee partly covered by the DRAC and partly in the urban planning services of the State and Territorial Communities), an exceptional grant of € 10 million was paid by the Ministry of Culture and Communication to INRAP under the FNAP. An identical allocation was paid to INRAP for the FNAP in 2009 under the Recovery Plan (Circular Balsamo of the Directorate of Heritage, July 10, 2009).

The statutes were drawn up in 1910 at the XVIIth International Congress of Americanists and signed on September 4 this year by Ezechiel Chavez (1868-1946, Mexico), Eduard Georg Seler (Prussia), Louis Capitan (France), Franz Boas (Columbia ), Roland B. Dixon (Harvard), George B. Gordon (Pennsylvania) Archer Huntington (SHA). They were slightly modified and confirmed on January 23, 1911, after the parties, except France, had ratified them. The Bavarian, Saxon and Russian governments joined the school in 1912-1913. Mexico provided a local, an annual grant and pledged to facilitate research. The collected pieces had to go to the Mexico City Museum, the participants receiving casts. The ratifying entities, with the exception of the SHA, each designated a representative to form the governing body of the institution. They sent pensioners and took turns managing the school for one year. The first director was Eduard Seler, the second Franz Boas. The third was to be chosen by France, but the latter still not ratifying, Franz Boas appointed to succeed Georges Enguerrand (1877 -1961), geologist Franco-Mexican student of Elisha Reclus. Boaz and Chavez considered stratigraphy as essential to the development of modern archeology. Because of its large foreign participation, the school met from the beginning a certain hostility on the part of the Mexican intellectuals, which was accentuated during the revolution and especially in 1917, when it was learned that some students and specialists had accepted to assume a role of spy in the context of the First World War. The case eventually led to the closure of the school.
