Grow and Distribute Revenue Reliably
To provide reliable revenue to the trust beneficiaries and ideally increase that revenue over time, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) needs to develop systems, processes, and tools to enable it to manage trust assets in ways that meet the beneficiaries' needs.
Under this focus area, DNR will improve how it tracks and reports gross and net revenue and costs. DNR also may explore ways to fund capital improvements to increase the revenue-generating potential of state trust lands, and examine ways to deliver revenue to trust beneficiaries more reliably. DNR also may need to adjust the way state trust land management is funded to increase efficiency and access to capital.
