Arranging for transport and accommodation

In consultation and coordination with the Regional supervisor, each Team leader is responsible for making travel arrangements for his or her team. This includes ensuring that every vehicle is maintained by the driver, is safe, provides adequate transportation to the work site and is used only for survey purposes.

The Team leader is also responsible for arranging accommodations in a secure location near the survey clusters. Ideally, the accommodations should also provide a central location for team meetings, equipment storage and equipment charging. Logistics are simplified if the lodging can be near the field laboratory processing facility.

Transport and accommodation plans should be shared with the Survey coordinator or administrative assistant, in accordance with the survey communication protocol.
