2017 Annual Operational Plan

The Intermountain West Joint Venture’s 2017 Annual Operational Plan establishes the priorities, activities, and budget of the IWJV for the 2017 federal fiscal year (Oct. 1, 2016, through Sept. 30, 2017).

Each of the four Elements in this plan—Science & Planning, Habitat Delivery, Communications & Human Dimensions, and Operations & Administration—includes a set of Strategies that will be undertaken and accomplished in FY 2017. For help with acronyms used in this plan, see Appendix A.

This Introduction lays out the foundation for the work we will be doing in FY 2017. It describes two overarching themes that are woven into this plan and are directly linked to the objectives stated in the 2013 IWJV Implementation Plan. These efforts are made possible by significant contributions of leadership, guidance, and support from the IWJV Management Board, most recently during two important exercises in the past year that will guide our future direction and operations.
