Call it what you wish - a "blue print," a "road map," a "master plan" - the CANUSA Program Activity Schedule serves several useful functions. With the Activity Schedule in hand every investigator can see how his or her work fits into the "big picture" and realize the significance of that work to achievement of Program objectives. Program Management finds the Activity Schedule useful for soliciting and selecting proposals for studies for funding and for making adjustments at the components, national, and international program levels. Furthermore, the Activity Schedule displays for the CANUSA Joint Planning Unit (JPU) "who is doing what," progress towards stated goals, and projected work in each program components for the remainder of the Program. In short, the Activity Schedule provides the framework for coordination of all research and development on spruce budworms related to program objectives and identifies opportunities for cooperation between all program investigators and components.
