Level One Inventories
Level one inventories
are of a general nature and will be conducted to provide baseline
information. This data will be used to support the resource objectives
and land use classifications. Level one inventories shall be conducted
in sufficient detail to determine acreage of dominant vegetation types,
soil and land use capabilities, wetland acreage and the presence of
status species occurring on project lands and waters. The level
one inventory shall in most cases be accomplished using available
existing information that is readily available from a variety of sources.
In 2003, the level one inventory became a budget based performance
measure and standards were developed. Input screens for data results
have been provided in OMBIL and reporting on inventory results are
required each year to meet performance tracked by the Office of Management
and Budget (OMB).
