Memorandum 2019.08
Component ID: #ti216895834

This memorandum documents the 2020 Census Combined Detailed Operational Plan for 32. Field Infrastructure and 33. Decennial Logistics Management. The 2020 Census Detailed Operational Plans for the Field Infrastructure operation (FLDI) and the Decennial Logistics Management operation (DLM) are presented in a single document because of the integrated nature of these two operations. This document is intended for use by U.S. Census Bureau managers, staff, contractors, and other internal and external stakeholders working on the 2020 Census.

This document presents the detailed operational design for FLDI and DLM and includes a summary of the operational processes involved, their inputs, outputs, controls, and the basic mechanisms employed to conduct the operational work. Significant differences between the previously released version and this are:

  • Added “Process Paper Applications” subactivity
  • Removed “Train Partnership Specialists” subactivity (outside of FLDI scope)
  • Updated references to supporting documentation from test documentation (FLD- series) to 2020 Census operational documentation (D- series)

This document complements the 2020 Census Operational Plan, which presents the 2020 Census operational design and covers all operations required to execute the 2020 Census, starting with pre-census address and geographic feature updates and ending once census data products are disseminated and coverage and quality are measured.
