This report has been generated in response to the Technical and Management review of the US Muon Accelerator Program conducted by the US Department of Energy Office of High Energy Physics on August 12–14, 2014. A key outcome of the review was the action item: "Present to DOE a detailed plan for Step 3pi/2 by 15 September 2014."

This report describes that plan, which aims for the completion of MAP-supported participation in the Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) with a demonstration of the full cooling process, including RF re-acceleration, on the 2017 timescale. It also targets a ramp-down of the other elements of the MAP research effort over roughly the next year with the goal of providing a suitable transition period for our early career researchers. We believe this plan will result in a successful demonstration of the muon ionization cooling process while fitting within the constraints specified by the US DOE.
