FWS FY10 Online Activity Dictionary

The FWS standardized, cross-functional activity dictionary, encompasses all processes and activities of the Service and link to DOI Activities. The codes reflected in this dictionary are included in the FPPS and FFS system, which have been used for live time tracking. These codes will also be used on the time tracking sheets that each employee will complete and provide to their timekeepers. Each Activity is defined below with some activities containing generic guidance regarding how to use the code. Please contact your ABC Regional representative for further guidance on selecting and/or identifying the appropriate work activity.

We recommend that for the links in black, you right click and choose Save Target As to download each file. The links in red are web versions of the activities and work descriptions so you do not need to right click.
