The U.S. Geological Survey Mineral Resources Program Five-Year Plan, 2006-2010

Appendix: Partners and customers

In its last five-year plan, MRP identified development of partnerships as a goal separate from the research and data collection goals. In this five-year plan, no such separate goal appears. All work activities are expected to be conducted in partnership with others; identification of stakeholders begins in the early idea-generating phases of project development and projects are not complete until results have been successfully communicated both within the project team and to appropriate audiences outside the project itself.

The following list demonstrates four different types of relationships between MRP-funded projects and their partners and customers, as well as the diversity of organizations with which the projects collaborate. It is current as of June 2005.

Cooperators | Collaborators | Clients | Grantees | Customers


Cooperators fund or provide logistical support for the USGS to produce scientific products or conduct scientific research that fosters the goals and objectives of the Program (or have provided support in the past), and directly use program information. Information format is tailored to cooperator needs.

USGS works closely with scientific collaborators to produce products required by the collaborators or other clients. In some cases, the USGS provides funding for the collaboration. In other cases, a separate client provides the funding.
