The Operations and Maintenance Business Information Link (OMBIL) was developed to provide a single location for data required to operate and manage the Operations function of the Corps. OMBIL contains modules for each business function, which currently include Navigation, Hydropower, Recreation, Environmental Stewardship, Environmental Compliance, Flood Risk Management, Water Supply, and Safety & Occupational Health. All business functions can be accessed through the OMBIL Web page.
The Partnerships pages in OMBIL are located under the Recreation Business Function. Data Input Forms can be found in the Business Function Data Input screen, listed in the drop-down menu under “REC- Annual Update, Step 6: Partnerships Update” and Reports are listed in the drop-down menu under “REC- Partnership Detail Report or REC-Partnership Summary Report.” Access to the Data Input Forms requires special permissions through the OMBIL administrator. Reports can also be accessed through the Business Function Reports screen under “REC- Partnership Detail Report or REC-Partnership Summary Report” by anyone with access to a Corps computer (no password or special permissions required).
Annual fiscal data entry for the Partnership pages opens each year October 1 - October 31 to enter the value of each partnership for the prior fiscal year.
Note: Partnership data entry involves a two-step process. Step 1: Enter information about the partnership, including agreement type, organization, organization type, date effective, description. Step 2: Enter information about the value of the partnership, including number of volunteers, volunteer hours, partner funds invested, professional services provided, materials and equipment donated, Corps contract funds, services, materials and equipment, and additional investments.
