Activity monitoring and Auditing

Activity monitoring and auditing

In addition to monitoring progress through reports on each cutblock reclamation project, the activities may also be monitored through FRIAA by an operational field audit process. Operational field audits would involve the random auditing of selected blocks and the evaluation of progress against the silvicultural strategy.
