A BLM planning document, prepared in accordance with Section 202 of the U.S. Federal Land Policy and Management Act, that presents systematic guidelines for making resource management decisions for an area or region. Based on an analysis of an area's resources and its existing management and capability for alternative uses, RMPs are issue oriented and developed by an interdisciplinary team with public participation.

A document prepared by field office staff with public participation and approved by field office managers that provides general guidance and direction for land management activities at a field office. The RMP identifies the need for fire in a particular area and for a specific benefit.
The BLM considers resource management plans to be synonymous with land use plans so the terms may be used interchangeably. Land use plan decisions made in RMPâ€™s establish goals and objectives for resource management (such as desired future conditions), the measures needed to achieve these goals and objectives, and parameters for using public lands. Land use planning decisions are usually made on broad scale and customarily guide subsequent site-specific implementation decisions.
