Abstract The purpose of this Adaptive Management (AM) Process Framework is to describe the AM process for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Missouri River Recovery Program (MRRP) and explain how AM principles will be used in the MRRP to reduce uncertainty and ensure that Program objectives are achieved over time. The AM Process Framework is intended to be broad so that it can be applied to all aspects of the MRRP and be understood by a diverse audience of managers, federal and state agencies, scientists, engineers, the Missouri River Recovery Implementation Committee (MRRIC), stakeholders, Tribes, and the public. The AM Process described in this document generally follows the U.S. Department of Interior s (DOI) Technical Guide on Adaptive Management and integrates the ideas contained within the USACE Working Draft AM Technical Guide (under development). The AM Process is guided by the following general phases and steps (see Sections 3.1 and 4.4): I: Strategy Development: (1) Plan (2) Design II. Strategy Implementation; (3) Build and Operate; (4) Monitor; (5) Assess; (6) Adjust This AM Process will be used during development of specific AM Strategies on a Sub-Program basis. This document does not describe the specific objectives or monitoring that will be used for individual Sub-Program AM Strategies, but instead explains the teams involved and the processes that will be underaken in the development and implementation of AM documents. Also described are the processes by which the MRRIC, other stakeholders, and the general public will be engaged as the individual Sub-Program level AM Strategies are developed, the information that will be included in AM documents, and the different types of AM documents that will be developed using the MRRP AM Process. Additionally, this document provides background information on Program-level activities (see Section 2).
