RMP Revision Documents
Preparation Plan: The preparation plan provides the foundation for the entire planning process by identifying the preliminary issues to be addressed, the skills needed to address them, a preliminary budget that can be used for the entire cost estimate, preliminary planning criteria, and data and metadata available and needed. A comphrehensive preparation plan provides management direction, oversight, structure, cost estimate, and a focus for the planning process.
Notice of Intent: The NOI to prepare the RMP with an associated Environmental Impact Statement for the Billings Field Office and Pompeys Pillar National Monument was published on May 15, 2008. This notice initiates the public scoping process. Comments and resource information should be submitted to the BLM within 90 days of publication of the notice.
Scoping Meeting Materials: Scoping is a collaborative public involvement process in which the BLM asks the public and other agencies to identify planning issues to be addressed in the planning process. The following scoping information packets provide the public with a great deal of background information regarding much of our current management (see planning area map).

- Instruction memoranda and information bulletins are department-issued guidance on policy, procedural, and informational items of interest to a broad audience of individuals. Instruction memorandums (IMs) provide new policy or procedural instructions which interpret existing regulations, policies, or instructions. Information bulletins (IBs) are used to disseminate information of interest to BLM employees. IBs do not contain BLM policy, directive, or instructional material, and are used to transmit material such as publications and announcements or call attention to existing policies or procedures. See the BLM FOIA website for a list of Bureau directives.
