Arizona NRCS Coordinated Resource Management Plan
A Coordinated Resource Management Plan (CRMP) is required anytime Arizona NRCS
Conservation Planners are assisting a client develop a conservation plan for a ranch that includes
state, and/or federally managed lands within the boundaries of the ranching operation. A
Coordinated Resource Management Plan involving a tribal authority and/or the Bureau of Indian
Affairs (BIA) may also be necessary in certain instances on tribal lands.
Note: Federal lands are the responsibility of the appropriate federal agency and are not
inventoried, planned or monitored by the NRCS unless the planning process is done with a
representative of the federal agency (180 GM-Part 409.4AZ). Technical assistance to Federal
agencies that will require a significant amount of NRCS resources will be based on an agreement
that provides for reimbursement of NRCS services (440 M-Part 525.22).
The following information will serve to guide Arizona NRCS Conservation Planners in the
development of Coordinated Resource Management Plans. This document is meant to provide
guidance on the format and the information that will be included in the CRMP document.
