WORK PLAN FOR THE INTERNATIONAL ST. MARY AND MILK RIVERS STUDY
26 September 2023
The IJC has appointed an equal number of members from Canada and the United States to the Study Board and named a member from both Canada and the United States to be the Co-Chairs of the Study Board. [...] Special Liaisons will act as the primary link between the Study Board and the IJC with the Government Forum to ensure that: • Government Forum members are provided regular updates on the work of the Study Board and offered a collaborative and collegial forum to share information and discuss questions and concerns, and • The IJC and the Study Board are kept aware of the views of Government Forum me. [...] The Special Liaisons will regularly attend Study Board meetings to keep abreast of the work of the Study Board and provide updates from and to the Government Forum, ensuring effective two-way communication between the Government Forum and the Study Board. [...] The Study Board, with the technical assistance of the IJC, will address the information management needs of the study, with options and recommendations for the archiving and dissemination of the study’s data assets. [...] Reviews will be scalable to the content of each component of the study, deliberately included as part of the study process throughout the life cycle of the study (scoping, interim products, and final products), and concurrent with recommendations to include previous work in the study and completion of new study phases/ products from each contributing agency/contractor and the Study Board.
