OMBIL - Recreation

Headquarters POC

The Operations and Maintenance Business Information Link (OMBIL) was developed to provide a single repository of information required to operate and manage the Operations function of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Key objectives in the development included one-time data entry, as well as access to corresponding, consistent information in various formats at all levels of the Operations community. OMBIL contains modules for each business function, which currently include Navigation (including Locks & Dredging), Hydropower, Recreation, Environmental Stewardship (including Natural Resources & Environmental Compliance), Flood Damage Reduction, and Regulatory. All business functions can be accessed through the OMBIL Web page.

Each business function identified its own data needs and provided advice and assistance in the development of its component. The Recreation Business Function employed a group of Subject Matter Experts (SME's) representing the project, District, and Division levels, with one HQ proponent, to assure that the needs of all users were addressed during development. The Recreation Business component replaces the old NRMS (Natural Resources Management System), which is now a historical database. The historical data are available at the NRMS Web page.

The Recreation Business Function module was deployed in March 2001; however, as data requirements change in the future, the system will evolve to enhance its capability to meet existing as well as new requirements.
