            Progress 01/01/00 to 12/31/00

            Outputs
            The Alaska Director served as Chair of the Western Region Research Implementation Committee (RIC) and Co-Chair of the Western Regional Coordination and Implementation Committee (RCIC) under the direction of the Western Association of Agricultural Experiment Station Directors. 2000 was a transitional year for these committees. The implementation of AREERA multistate and integrated activities has encouraged western Directors of SAES and CES to initiate the RCIC to provide administrative oversight to all western coordinating and technical committees. The transition will be complete by the end of FY2001. In 2000, RIC considered and recommended for approval to the Western Association of Agricultural Experiment Station Directors (WAAESD) renewal of W-082 and W-167 and the establishment of the new W-195 "Water Quality Issues in Poultry Production and Processing". RCIC considered and recommended for approval to the WAAESD and Western Cooperative Extension Service Directors renewal of WCC-027, -039, -067, -069, -097, -101, and -108 as well as the establishment of new coordinating committees, WCC-202 "Climatic Data Applications in Irrigation Scheduling and Water Conservation", -203 "Animal Utilization of Products from Processing Agricultural Commodities", -204 "Animal Bioethics", -205 "Integrated Water Quality Research and Extension Programs for the Western U.S.", and -206 "Pacific Basin Tropical Agriculture". The respective committees also appointed Administrative Advisors for a number of technical and coordinating committees. Joint RCIC and RIC discussions were carried out at the spring and summer meetings regarding operating procedures, policies, and guidelines for the future. The Supplementary Guidelines for Western Multistate Research are now available at http://www.colostate.edu/orgs/WAAESD .

            Impacts
            RCIC will serve as the primary instrument to review and recommend disposition of all proposed multistate research and coordinating committees and ensure accountability in compliance with AREERA requirements for accomplishments and resource commitment reporting. Multistate and integrated research will address regional and national priorities as developed by USDA-CSREES based on stakeholders input.
