Reclamation's Performance Improvement Officer
Reclamation's Policy on Budget and Performance Integration / Performance Improvement
Commissioner Michael Conner puts Reclamation's priorities in the following five categories:
- Infrastructure. The Department values the water, energy, and recreational services Reclamation provides at about $19.6 billion each year. We also provide about at $55 billion in economic activity and 416,000 jobs each year.
- WaterSMART. The S.M.A.R.T. in WaterSMART stands for Sustain and Manage America's Resources tomorrow. WaterSMART allows all bureaus of the Department to work with States, Tribes, local
governments, and non-governmental organizations to pursue a sustainable water supply for the Nation by establishing a framework to provide federal leadership and assistance on the efficient use of water, integrating water and energy policies to support the sustainable use of all natural resources, and coordinating the water conservation activities of the various Interior offices. See #5 , Renewable Energy. Example: Desert Landscape Conservation Cooperative.
- Ecosystem Restoration. To meet mission goals, a part of the programs must focus on the protection and restoration of aquatic and riparian environments influenced by its operations. It is critical that Reclamation continue to invest in eco-system restoration if we are going to continue to supply water and power reliably as we have historically. Example: Klamath River.
- Strengthening Tribal Nations. We will implement Indian water rights settlements over the next 20 years. We anticipate that Reclamation will invest between $150 to $200 million per year to fulfill this responsibility. These activities include projects and actions to implement Indian water rights settlements, technical assistance to tribes, and ecosystem restoration. Example: Navajo Gallup.
- Renewable Energy. Hydropower is a renewable and reliable resource providing clean energy to the western United States. It is the nation's largest renewable energy resource and the Bureau of Reclamation is the second largest producer in the United States.
