5191.02 - Objectives. To assure a quality analysis is performed on each forest which
meets national and regional direction by establishing a uniform set of minimum
criteria.

To provide forests concise, uniform means of: updating annually their Fire
Management Action Plan (FMAP); requesting economic efficiency (EFFS) funds for
the annual budget process; and requesting severity (EFFS) funds when needed.

5191.04 - Responsibilities.

5191.04b - Regional Foresters. The Regional Forester will validate National Fire
Management Analysis System (NFMAS) data from each Forest a minimum of once
every three years. Validation may occur more often if significant changes occur in
the fire program on a Forest.

The intent of the validation process is to assure that Forests in the Region are
meeting all NFMAS requirements in a consistent manner throughout the Region.
The validated NFMAS data becomes an integral part of the normal PD&B and
severity request process. Annual updates of the NFMAS data is a key factor in the
fire program budget process.

5191.04c - Forest Supervisors. Each Forest Supervisor is required to complete a
NFMAS analysis and have it validated by a Regional NFMAS Validation Team. If
changes are planned in the fire program, a new analysis will be completed and
validated. The approved validation Most Efficient Level (MEL) budget is used for
the Program Development and Planning (PDB) and Forest Plan budget. Any
budget changes will be implemented into next PDB and Forest Plan Budget cycle.

Forest Supervisors will have an approved Fire Management Action Plan (FMAP). If
the FMAP is changed or updated the Regional Office will be sent only the revised
documentation. A 5100-2 must be updated and submitted each year. The 5100-2 is
considered a part of the FMAP.

Fire budget requests are made two years in advance using the validated NFMAS
data. Indirect and support program dollars may be changed without NFMAS
analysis but must be approved by the Forest Supervisor. Direct program dollars
may not be changed without a new validated analysis that has the approval of the
Forest Supervisor. NFMAS update requests are due December 1 each year.

Natural Fuels Management program submission is done in conjunction with the fire
budget request. The fuels program will be in compliance with the Forest Plan.
Increases or decreases in program dollars and target requests must be approved by
the Forest Supervisor, and submitted to the Regional Office through the normal
PD&B process for changes.

5191.04d - Documentation Requirements. Documentation for NFMAS will be
comprised of: A narrative; supporting documents; IAA (Initial Attack Assessment
Model) printouts; and R2NFMAS Tables 1, 2, 3, and 4. The tables are shown as
exhibits 01, 02, and 03. The Data and Report Technology System (Darts) 5100-2
and Darts Results Summary will replace the R2NFMAS tables in the future.

5191.04g - Data Storage Requirements. All data used in the analysis will be
included. Data included with the package shall be stored on 3.5 " floppy disk. Each
disk shall include a printout of the file directories with the disk. All data should be
backed-up on diskette and/or tape. Make copies of all diskettes and sendone copy to

expedite assistance when needed.

Standardized file naming conventions shall be used as noted in the NFMAS
reference manuals and the Darts Program.

5192.1 - Financial Planning, Accounts, and Accountabilit. Direction on specific uses
of fire funds are provided in FSH 6509.11g Chapter 50. The following activity fund
codes will be used for direct (PF114) and indirect (PF112) expenditures. Direction
for determination of direct and indirect costs can be found in the interim directive
for FSH 5109.19 to Chapter 10.

5192.2 - Forest Fire Severity Authorization. Requests for severity authorization
must be submitted to the Regional Office Fire Management Group two weeks prior
to the expected need (e.g. if severity funds are needed for the period June 1 to June
30, the request must be in the Regional Office by May 15). Follow the directions
outlined in 5192.22 a, b, d, and f, use form R2-5100-41 for information requested in
f.
