The Federal Policy and Management Act (FLPMA) directs the BLM to develop, maintain, and revise land use plans for public lands. BLM guidance requires an implementation strategy to be developed within one year of signature of the Record of Decision for a land use plan revision.
Course Description: This Plan Implementation training is divided into 3 modules to correspond with the 3 steps of the process. The training is set up so the team watches the online module, and then completes the work required in that step. We recommend the State P&EC, or other trained facilitator, help with Steps 2 and 3, and possibly Step 1. Contact the National Training Center for recommendations. Each participant should have a copy of the Participant Guide and Example Worksheet (below) to watch the training.
Course Objectives: The overall objective of the three modules is to show you how to develop an Implementation Strategy that will increase consistency of implementation among field offices; track and measure the progress of implementing a plan; provide stable and attainable targets; and provide field, district, and state offices a valuable tool to prioritize and plan its workload.
Target Audience: interdisciplinary team who developed and/or will be implementing the land use plan. The BLM field manager or district manager should be present to provide context and insights the team may not be aware of. Involving the cooperating agencies, state program leads, budget officers, and other internal and/or external partners in Steps 2 and 3 can greatly enhance the value and effectiveness of the Implementation Strategy.
Module 3 describes how to complete Step 3: schedule the work from Step 1 and input it in the spreadsheet.
- Input the current fiscal year targets into the spreadsheet (or next year's targets, dependent on when in the fiscal year you are).
- Review the past few years' project target allocations (PTAs) to see the average workload and use that (plus the current year) to estimate the annual workload for the next few years.
