The Interagency Fire Program Management Standard (IFPM) is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Forest Service and the Department of Interior wildland bureaus to establish minimum qualification standards for key positions in Fire and Aviation Management (FAM). IFPM was fully implemented on October 1, 2010. After that date, all incumbents and new applicants to the key FAM position are required to meet minimum qualification standards identified in the IFPM Standard.

In addtion, the U.S. Forest Service implemented an agency addendum to IFPM called the Forest Service Fire Program Management Standard (FS-FPM). FS-FPM was fully implemented on October 1, 2013. After that date, all incumbents and new applicants to key FAM positions are required to meet minimum qualification standards identified in the FS-FPM Standard.

All of the Forest Service national standard position descriptions (NSPD) identified on the IFPM/FS-FPM Crosswalk are updated to correspond to the IFPM and FS-FPM Standards. Only those NSPD’s are considered IFPM or FS-FPM positions, and all other NSPD’s are not subject to the IFPM or FS-FPM Standards. Similarily, the OCR announcements for IFPM and FS-FPM positions should require attainment of the primary and secondary core requirements as well as any additional required training as selective placement factors. The IFPM or FS-FPM requirements must be met in order to be eligible for selection. For additional details, refer to the IFPM or FS-FPM Implementation Plan(s) on this website.

When filling an IFPM vacancy, please refer to the Forest Service SPD Crosswalk and the Manager's Hiring Trail or the Permanent Fire Website.
