The AQIM Handbook covers background information about the Government Performance Results Act (GPRA) and its influence to integrate risk analysis and risk management into Agriculture Quarantine Inspection (AQI) program. With that introduction, the Handbook then provides necessary information about statistics, risk analysis, and a sampling process to provide the foundation for implementing AQIM. Next, the Handbook provides guidelines and instruction for setting up designated locations for AQIM. The remainder of the Handbook is divided into pathway sections. Given that AQIM is a different way of conducting business, this Handbook is an attempt to provide officers and managers with background and guidance to implement AQIM activities. As processes improve and are developed, the Handbook will expand in its scope. Along with specific documents written to establish local procedures, such as a standard operating procedure, this Handbook will serve as the information tool for implementing AQIM activities and for training individuals about risk analysis and risk management.
