In the President's budget for Fiscal Year 2012, the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII), a program under the U.S. Geological Survey’s Biological Information Management and Delivery Program, was terminated. As a result, the funding that facilitated the NBII Node partnerships, as well as the development and maintenance of databases, applications and systems, is no longer available. On January 15, 2012, all NBII websites/applications with an *.nbii.gov URL were removed from the internet.
This website currently provides the latest information on communications with partners, the disposition status of NBII Web sites, data and applications, and general FAQs related to the NBII Program’s termination. The NBII Program close-out will be complete on September 30, 2012, and the www.nbii.gov URL will be turned off on that date. The termination information provided here will be made available on the USGS FAQ site after September 30, 2012.
