2018 Annual Operational Plan

The Intermountain West Joint Venture’s 2018 Annual Operational Plan establishes the priorities, activities, and budget of the IWJV for the 2018 federal fiscal year (October 1, 2017, through September 30, 2018).

Audience and Purpose: This operational plan is for the IWJV Management Board. It enables the Management Board to efficiently direct the IWJV’s time, resources, and energy toward the highest-priority efforts in FY 2018. This function is extremely important, in that we work to support habitat conservation across 486 million acres of the West through relationships with an increasingly diverse and growing cast of partners; in short, there are countless valid activities in which we could engage. This operational plan guides the Management Board and staff in establishing clear priorities, focusing the IWJV’s attention on those tasks that will help us realize the highest possible return on investment.

Summary of Content: Each of the four elements in this plan—Science & Planning, Habitat Delivery, Communications, and Operations & Administration—includes a set of Strategies that will be undertaken and accomplished in FY 2018. For help with acronyms used in this plan, see Appendix A.
