Pre-NEPA responsibilities of CBMR and the Forest Service
An October, 2004 CBMR/USFS pre-NEPA Planning workshop document (titled "Pre NEPA Planning") outlined some of the "Front Loading" responsibilities of CBMR and the USFS, including:

CBMR - "Demonstrate/legitimize the public need, engage stakeholders to identify Issues and Concerns, address Issues and Concerns in MDP design."

USFS - "Evaluate proposal according to [pre-NEPA] screening criteria [see below], Identify resource constraints and capabilities, Evaluate adequacy of disclosure and/or stakeholder involvement."
