USDA FOREST SERVICE : Strategic Planning and Resource Assessment

Management's Discussion and Analysis

2003 Forest Service Performance Indicators and Trends

The Budget and Performance Initiative of the PMA highlights the critical need for Federal agencies to integrate their budget and performance responsibilities. The preparation of the Forest Service Performance and Accountability Report—Fiscal Year 2003 is an excellent example of this initiative between the Program and Budget (P&BA) and Strategic Planning and Resource Assessment (SPRA) staffs.

In “Performance Reporting Issues for FY 2003 Forest Service Performance Accountability Report,” dated August 21, 2003, the CFO and the Deputy Chief for Programs, Legislation, and Communication jointly directed the region, station, and area directors to report FY 2003 performance accomplishments to P&BA Staff by September 19, 2003. All FY 2003 accomplishment information was needed prior to year-end in order to meet external reporting requirements and to meet the needs of FY 2005 Budget Justification deadlines.

Performance information was certified and reported to P&BA by the deadline, but the results represented an actual and estimated accomplishment, due to the accelerated schedule. After P&BA verified and validated the information, it was released to the SPRA Staff for inclusion in the FY 2003 Performance and Accountability Report.

The certification procedure used in this process applies to the actual and estimated results. It provides reasonable assurance that the information is relevant and reliable. Supporting documentation of the methodology and the measures used to make the estimates was maintained at the reporting units, as requested in the letter mentioned above. All performance numbers are entered in the 10-month actual and 2-month estimate columns, but the data is footnoted if the reporting period differs.

Final accomplishment information was due December 1, 2003, for all nongrant-related accomplishments. All grant-related accomplishments were due December 15, 2003. As they become available, final 12-month actual accomplishments that differ from reported information will be posted on the Web version of the report and will be updated in the FY 2004 Performance and Accountability Report.

Despite a focus on consistency and a convergent evolution, there are several indicators that are not 10-month actual/2-month estimates. Forest products are reported on a 9-month actual and 3-month estimate basis since their performance reporting systems are based on fiscal year quarters.

Also, the three performance indicators for Law Enforcement and Investigations (LEI) were reported to the P&BA staff directly by the Washington Office LEI staff. These three line items are considered 12-month estimates, as the LEI performance accountability system, LEIMARS, tracks performance on the calendar, rather than the fiscal, year. Finally, the NFP indicators are tracked in the NFP performance accountability system, National Fire Plan Operations and Reporting System (NFPORS), with results representing 12-month actual performance. All other exceptions are footnoted in the 2003 Planned and Actual Performance table.

Certified performance information for FY 2003 is represented in the following three tables:

  • Exhibit 5: 2003 Planned and Actual Performance.
  • Exhibit 6: Performance Trends 1999-2003.
  • Exhibit 7: Data Sources for Actual and Estimated Performance (includes reporting period).
