We will submit all announcements of funding opportunities to the CSREES NPL for review. We will provide funds for State Contacts, Working Groups, Critical Issues and with hold some emerging issues funds. For each funding opportunity, the agreement describes: a. priority setting process, b. announcement process, c. decision making process. Subcontracting Processes To be open, fair and free of conflict of interest

8 IPM Center Mission To develop, maintain, improve, and expand IPM practices in public and private sectors and to increase access to IPM information, extension programs, and funding opportunities for our stakeholders.

9 IPM Center Goals 1.Establish a process for stakeholder identification and prioritization of emerging pest management issues for research, extension and outreach to respond to economic, human health, environmental and safety concerns.

10 IPM Center Goals 2. Serve as a focal point for collaborative team building to develop, improve, maintain and expand IPM practices in the North Central Region.

11 IPM Center Goals 3. Enhance the ability of the land-grant system and USDA to provide IPM users, researchers, governmental agencies, and the public with the information and knowledge they need to increase IPM adoption and reduce unreasonable adverse environmental effects from pests and the use of pest management practices.

12 IPM Center Goals 4. Ensure accountability and leadership for proper management and distribution of Center resources.

20 State Contact The IPM Center funds a State Contact person for each state through a competitive process. The State Contact gathers IPM priorities, develops IPM programs and materials, links to other state-based IPM programs, responds to information requests, creates a list of IPM experts and information, develops and revises crop profiles and Pest Management Strategic Plans and serves as a member of a Working Group. In 2004 $300,000 is available for State Contacts, with about $25,000 per state. The IPM Center funds a State Contact person for each state through a competitive process.

33 Pest Management Strategic Plans Pest Management Strategic Plans are commodity-based documents that take a pest-by-pest approach to identifying current pest management practices (chemical and non-chemical). Each PMSP, developed by a coalition of scientists, crop consultants, industry representatives, commodity organizations, growers and others, focuses on production in a state or region, addressing needs and identifying priorities for research, regulatory activity, and education/training programs.

44 Pest Management Alternatives Program (PMAP) Supports development of replacement tactics and technologies for pesticides undergoing regulatory action where there are no effective registered alternatives. It funds short-term projects for technologies that show promise of adoption but require further demonstration and outreach.
