Managing for Excellence

To be adequately prepared for the challenges of the 21st Century, it is essential that Reclamation thoroughly examine its core capabilities in a number of key areas, as well as its ability to respond in an innovative and timely manner to future needs.

The Bureau's Managing for Excellence Action Plan outlines a process and timeframe for identifying and addressing the specific 21st Century challenges to fulfill our mission to manage, develop, and protect water and related resources in an environmentally and economically sound manner in the interest of the American public.

The objective of Team 24 under the Managing for Excellence Action Plan is to provide one-stop shopping for acquisition/assistance related guidance and information. As such, the team has developed this web site which will serve as a resource center of acquisition and financial assistance information for use by all Reclamation employees. This web site is designed to clarify roles and responsibilities, steps in the acquisition and/or assistance process, as well as, providing samples and templates.
