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 special 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).
