Review Process Update


By: Rick Pearsall - USGS (03/04/2003)

Activity: FY04 Passback Language - USGS/FEMA/Census multi-agency coordination

Background: FY04 Passback Language
"Currently, there is no strategic approach to geospatial investments by the United States Geological Survey, US Census Bureau and Federal Emergency Management Agency. OMB expects the USGS National Map, US Census Bureau's MAF/Tiger Modernization and FEMA's Floodplain Map Modernization efforts will coordinate investments in FY2003 where possible. By March 1, 2003, the FGDC and the Geospatial One-Stop Team, working with the three agencies, should provide a report to OMB which identifies: 1) geospatial investments that can be combined from these three efforts during FY2003, such as applications that automate data collection and updates with state and local government: and 2) whether a unified business case would be appropriate in FY 2004."

Activities to Date:

  • Feb 10, 2003 Meeting with OMB, FGDC, USGS, FEMA and Census
