The Trustees have followed through on their commitment to a transparent administrative process by revising their standard operating procedures for increased clarity and accuracy. These operating procedures guide the long-term management, implementation, and administration of settlement funds for natural resource restoration.

The changes include revisions to:

  • Financial Topics (deposits, returns, excess funds)
  • Financial audit details
  • Monitoring and Adaptive Management guidelines
  • Supplemental Environmental Assessment and Environmental Impact Statement procedures

And the addition of:

  • Appendix E (guidelines for appending the Standard Operating Procedures)

The revised standard operating procedures are available here (PDF, 253 pages).
