U.S. National Management Plans

National Invasive Species Management Plan

Executive Order

Executive Order 13112 established the National Invasive Species Council (Council) in 1999. The specific focus of the Council is to ensure that Federal agency activities concerning invasive species are coordinated, complementary, cost-efficient, and effective. Executive Order 13112 requires the Council to produce a National Management Plan (NMP) for invasive species every two years.

First National Management Plan

In January 2001, the Council released the first NMP, which served as the blueprint for all federal action on invasive species. The Plan was written in association with eight working groups, the Invasive Species Advisory Committee, and input obtained from the public at public hearings held across the country.

Current National Management Plan

Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne convened the National Invasive Species Council (NISC) on August 1, 2008 to oversee the adoption of the new 2008-2012 National Invasive Species Management Plan. The plan was developed collaboratively with 13 federal departments and agencies and their partners. Federal expenditures on invasive species are estimated to exceed $1.3 billion annually. The plan is the culmination of an extensive process of expert review, and public comment.
