  • Oregon Revised Statute 541.409, which created the Independent Multidisciplinary Science Team (IMST), specifies that agencies are to respond to the recommendations of the IMST, stating “(3) If the Independent Multidisciplinary Science Team submits suggestions to an agency responsible for implementing a portion of the Oregon Plan [for Salmon and Watersheds], the agency shall respond in writing to the team explaining how the agency intends to implement the suggestion or why the agency does not implement the suggestion. The Team shall include any agency responses in its report to the Joint Legislative Committee on Salmon and Stream Enhancement”. For this reason, the IMST has explicitly identified its suggestions as recommendations and has directed them to specific agencies. The recommendations of the IMST are included in Technical Reports, Letter Reports and letters. Recommendations deal with technical and scientific matters that the IMST feels are important for the Oregon Plan. This report compiles recommendations, summaries of agency responses, and IMST's evaluation of responses within the context of the Oregon Plan. Recommendations were made in letter reports and technical reports produced by the IMST from October 2000 through 2004.
