 RESOURCES

The number of resources currently committed is obtained from the Resource Ordering and Status System (ROSS). The numbers may be slightly off if resources have not been released properly or in a timely fashion. The Overhead column only reflects individual overhead positions, not the total number of personnel assigned. For specific Resource Status information, please refer to the Northern Rockies Resource Status (SIT100) Report.
