About Us

Enterprise Units

The Enterprise Program is an initiative started in 1997 by the Pacific Southwest Region and Research Station (Region 5) of the Forest Service to “experiment” with developing internal enterprise businesses creating an alternative organizational model that emulates a market environment. This program was designed to unleash the creativity of Forest Service (FS) employees by allowing them to develop internal entrepreneurial “businesses” that are focused on three things while making government “work better and cost less”. They are: a) promoting the Forest Service mission; b) applying business functions to government activities; and c) improving accountability.

The Enterprise Program is increasing efficiency of operations within the Agency and enhancing the work environment for employees, resulting in improved service to the public and increased quality of public land management. As the Agency continues to downsize. Enterprise employees provide skills and experience that is in short supply and becoming less available over time. The Enterprise Program goal supplements and supports the current workforce to accomplish Regional and National priorities.

All Enterprise Units are organizationally assigned to the Washington Office, Business Operations. The enterprisers and their clients are located throughout the United States and beyond.
