WATER RESOURCES DIVISION MEMORANDUM NO. 76.15
August 11, 1975


Subject: PROGRAMS AND PLANS - Reporting of proposed work turned down by WRD offices because of 
personnel limitations


There is an increasing need for documentation at Headquarters to respond to the Director, 
the Department, 0MB and Congress concerning requirements for personnel and funding for 
proposed new or expanded programs. The most pressing requirement is to identify those 
proposals to WRD offices by other Federal agencies which must be turned down because of
the lack  of specially qualified personnel.


All Districts, Regional Offices, and Headquarters units are, therefore, requested to report
each such turn-down by  memorandum using the attached format. The report should be furnished 
to the office of the Assistant Chief Hydrologist for Operations immediately after the proposer 
has been informed that the work cannot be accepted. Districts should simultaneously send a copy
of the report to their Regional Offices.


We hope that by having this material on hand we will be better able to justify additional manpower
for the Division’s programs. Your continued attention to this matter is most important and will be
greatly appreciated

J.S. Cragwall, Jr.
Chief Hydrologist
