The administrative authority for BMAP rests with NCWRC, but enabling legislation allows NCWRC to transfer program administration, upon agreement, to Wildlife Services, view the G.S. 113-291.10. Presently, Wildlife Services administers BMAP according to a plan developed by the Beaver Damage Control Advisory Board (the Advisory Board) and approved by NCWRC. The administration of BMAP follows the state fiscal year, July 1 to June 30.
The Advisory Board is composed of representatives from nine state and federal agencies and non-governmental organizations. It meets at least once annually to review the previous year’s accomplishments and to make recommendations for the coming year.
