The BLM recognizes that its data and the processed information derived from them are a very significant and valuable resource. Data collected in the course of doing business in all organizational units of the BLM are owned by the BLM. These data represent information assets of the BLM and are critical to its ability to achieve successful implementation of the strategies outlined in the Annual Work Plans. The BLM will protect its investment in data and its derived applications to ensure that they are efficiently managed and accessible in useful forms.
The mission of the Data Resource Management program is to manage the BLM corporate data and Oregon and Washington’s State standardized data as valuable assets that will enable the BLM to carry out its mission in Oregon and Washington.
