Idaho Department of Landsupdated: July 2015

 

Mission

To professionally and prudently manage Idaho's endowment assets to maximize long-term financial returns to public schools and other trust beneficiaries and to provide professional assistance to the citizens of Idaho to use, protect and sustain their natural resources.

Vision

The Idaho Department of Lands will be the premier organization for trust management, service, and regulatory oversight in the western United States. We will invest in Idaho’s resources to maximize financial returns to the endowment trust beneficiaries and enhance the health and resilience of Idaho’s natural resources for the benefit of all Idahoans. We will deliver programs with professionalism and integrity, providing exemplary service to the citizens of Idaho. We will invest in our employees and have an organizational culture and framework that equips, entrusts, and expects employees to make decisions. The Idaho Department of Lands will be a unified and vibrant organization in which all employees participate in constructive communication to fully meet our missions.

The dedicated staff of the Idaho Department of Lands function in 16 offices throughout the state.

We manage more than 2.4 million acres of state endowment trust land under a Constitutional mandate to maximize long term financial returns to a number of State institutions, mainly public schools.

We also manage Idaho's public trust lands for the good of the public, the lands beneath Idaho's navigable waterways including millions of miles of riverbed and the beds and banks of Idaho's navigable lakes.

We provide regulatory oversight of forestry practices in the State and some regulation of Idaho's mining industry.

We provide assistance to Idahoans through a number of forestry programs and provide fire protection and prevention on more than 6 million acres in Idaho.

We operate under the management directives of the Land Board.

The Idaho Department of Lands also is the administrative arm of the Idaho Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.

Vital to the smooth operation of the entire department — including the Land Board and the Oil and Gas Conservation Commission — are the dedicated people in the support services division of the IDL who perform technical services, information systems management, fiscal management, records management, and procurement functions from their offices in the department’s headquarters in Boise and Coeur d’Alene.
