The bulletin is intended for Remedial Project Managers (RPMs), to help them plan and manage ecological assessments of sites as part of the Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS) process. As used here, the generic term work scope describes the process of specifying the work to be done for the ecological assessment, as part of the overall RI Work Plan. The term encompasses project scoping, development and approval of the Work Plan, and preparation of the Statement of Work (SOW) for contractors (at Fund-lead sites). The outcome of a successfully executed work scope should be an ecological assessment that includes four essential components: problem formulation, exposure assessment, ecological effects assessment, and risk characterization.
