Abstract

In order justify control and know what level of authority IDNR has at all sites, FW16-D-001 was initiated on July 1, 2011 and focused on (objective 1) creating a digital database identifying the various types of any outstanding land rights and interests at each IDNR site and (objective 2) spatially mapping as many of these outstanding land rights into the existing OMLP GIS database as possible, incorporating addition layers as necessary. This project, FW-16-D-002, was initiated on September 1, 2012 (a 3-month overlap with the end of FW-16-D-001) which included an additional $200,000 of Pittman-Robertson and $175,000 Dingell-Johnson funds and extended the grant period by 24-months. The objectives were the same as those in the previous contract with a goal of completing the scanning of deeds, Owners Policies, and any outstanding land rights documents for at least 40 sites and spatially mapping any outstanding land rights for approximately 30 sites. FW-16-D-002, MOD #1 was initiated on July 1, 2014 and included an additional $375,000 of Pittman-Robertson funds and extended the grant period by 24-months. The objectives were once again the same, but the total number of completed sites was increased to 100 for the scanning of deeds, Owners Policies, and any outstanding land rights documents and spatially mapping any outstanding land rights was increased to at least 40 sites. FW-16-D-002, MOD #2 was initiated on July 1, 2016 and included an additional $1,078,900 of Pittman-Robertson funds, extended the grant period by 36-months, increased the number of IDNR owned sites with an eligible federal nexus to be address under this grant from 100 to 300, and added a new objective of digitizing land use and asset inventory information for at least 300 of the IDNR sites. FW-16-D-002, MOD #3 was initiated on July 1, 2019 and included an extension of the grant period by 12-months and a budget revision to reallocate existing funds among line items. It also modified objective 2, the spatially mapping of any outstanding land rights at IDNR sites into the existing OMLP GIS database by also incorporating new parcel acquisitions, updating exiting parcels, adding new layers as necessary, and maintaining and/or migrating the database so that it is up to date with current standards. The total number of sites to complete for this objective was also increased to approximately 200 sites.
