  9. Changes to Action Plan • Segue From Framework to Action Plan • Stress Relationship to Framework • Describe Business Engineering Model • Discuss Expected Results of Implementation • System-Based vs. Issue-Based Methods • “Nested” Protocols at Various Scales • Shift to Mid-Scale Inventories

  10. Changes to Action Plan • Target Audience • Will Keep Action Plan at ESCT/IREMCG Level • Major Actions • Outcome Focus • Will Use Working Group “Assignments” to Capture Operational Details and Relationships

  11. Changes to Action Plan • Organization Structure • Increased Priority on Organization Actions • Build from Experience In FIA/FHM/NRIS • Formalize Contact Network/Roles • Ensure I&M Advice and Assistance is Available to Field Units (R&D, IMI, Engineering Technical Centers)

  12. Changes to Action Plan • Business Requirements and Protocol Development • Strengthen Field-level Input/Ownership • Exploit Work from FIA/NRIS/FHM • Drop National/Regional Phased Approach • Program/Budget Actions • Clarify Program Management Actions • Strengthen Links to Budget Allocation

  13. Help Needed • Director/DRF Support and Commitment • Cultural Change Demands Leadership Involvement • Identify R/S/A Staff Director-Level Contact • Support IMIT Action Plan Funding Request • Funds Requested For Contractor/Task Groups • Spans FY2001-2003 @ $670,000/year • NFIM, SPFH, FRRE Funding Mix

  14. Help Needed • People for IMIT/Working Groups • Must have Field Participation for Ownership • Using Ad hoc Process Like SDIT and Others • Next Option is to Establish Organization to do… • Secure Regulatory Agency Participation • Tie On-Going Actions to IM Framework • Wilderness Business Requirements - Monitoring • Cohesive Fire Strategy – Assessments

  15. Next Steps • Affirm IMIT Charter for Implementation • Continue Joint Leadership? • Bolster Field Representation • June 6-8 IMIT Team Meeting • Review Action Plan and Milestones • Make Working Group “Assignments” • Contingency Planning

  16. Next Steps • Recruit and Secure Working Group Members • Need to Ensure Field Representation • Engage Regulatory Agencies • Meetings and Conf. Call Circuit • FIA Management and Executive Teams • NRIS User Boards and Regional Coordinators

  17. Operational Framework for Managing FS Resource Information (1997) Data Base Inventory and Monitoring Protocols Product Application Tree, Douglas Fir, 32.6” DBH, 180 ft. tall, etc. Information Analysis, Evaluation, Summary Reports, Models. Assessments, Maps, etc. Definitions, Protocols, Methods, codes Physical feature Data collection Information storage 1 2 3 4 5 6

  18. The Core Data Concept National Eco-Region Watershed Site National Core Eco-region Core Watershed Core Site Core Variables

  19. Integration of Protocols • Essential for aggregation and exchange of data • Not subject to changing issues/demands • Provides “context” for decision making at lower scales • Leverages investments made at higher scales R1/4 Integrated Approach vs. Traditional Stand Exams

  20. Changing Our I&M Investment Pattern • Currently spending money and addressing most issues at the “site” scale. • Shift funds to National and Mid-scales to address issues at more appropriate scales. $ National Mid-scale Site $ National Mid-scale Site

  21. Major Comments • …Focus and Scope of Proposed Actions • National vs. Field-level Focus • Relationship to Field-level Activities • …Organizational Structure • Cultural Change Demands Leadership • Needed to Provide Integrated Program Leadership

  22. Major Comments • …Relationship to Budget Processes • Address Funding Discrepancies • Link to Budget Allocation Processes • Develop Integrated Priority Setting Process • …Inter-Agency Collaboration • National Agreements/Leadership Essential • Resolve IT Barriers (e.g., Firewalls)

  23. Major Comments • …Pace of Action Plan • Impact/Effect on Field, Especially Cost • Availability of People/Resources • Too Slow • …Linkage to Proposed NFMA Rule • To support broad-scale assessments • To support increased monitoring emphasis

  24. Major Comments • …Linkages to NRIS • NRIS Viewed as Standardization Method • Linkages Unclear • …Level of Detail • Need More Detail to Better Understand • Too Complex, Need Less Detail
