“BREAKING NEWS: The Department of Interior’s own investigation agency has uncovered the facts that the BLM is mismanaged, shoots from the hip, has no plan and violates federal law. OH MY GOODNESS, I am SHOCKED, STUNNED…the sky is falling and we must tell the king. Duhhhhhhh, why does this make the pain in my chest hurt more? STUPID permeates the agency that is entrusted with protecting the well being of our wild horses and burros. As usual, I am NOT impressed!” ~ R.T.
We conducted a review to determine whether the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) cooperative agreements and contracts for wild horse and burro off-range holding facilities are cost effective and comply with applicable Federal laws and regulations.
We found that BLM does not maximize the cost-effectiveness of its off-range holding facilities. Specifically, BLM’s contracts do not ensure best value for services, BLM does not maximize the use of its pastures, and BLM has no strategic plan to manage wild horse and burro populations. We also found that some of BLM’s cooperative agreements with correctional institutions do not comply with Federal laws and regulations. We made four recommendations to address the issues we identified.
