U.S. National Management Plans

National Invasive Species Management Plan

Executive Orders

Executive Order 13112 established the National Invasive Species Council in 1999. Executive Order 13751 amends Executive Order 13112 and directs actions to continue coordinated Federal prevention and control efforts related to invasive species.

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.

Current National Management Plan

The 2016–2018 National Invasive Species Council Management Plan was adopted on July 11, 2016. The Plan identifies the high priority, interdepartmental actions that the Federal government and its partners can take to prevent, eradicate, and control invasive species, as well as recover ecosystems and restore other assets adversely impact by invasive species. For more information see:

Previous National Management Plans

Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne convened the National Invasive Species Council 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.

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.
