Forest Service 2003 Success Stories

Success Stories: WorkPlan Launches in 2003!

The Forest Service launched a project work-planning tool on May 27, 2003 WorkPlan. This new tool brings a consistent approach to project planning and tracking in the agency, replacing several variations of an older tool PWPS in use since the 1980s.

One of WorkPlan's primary objectives is to meet field planning needs, while minimizing the impact of national reporting on the forest and district offices. At the field level, WorkPlan supports project management in planning and tracking progress, while at the national level it is a source of information for improved financial management -- one of the initiatives in the President's Management Agenda (PMA).

WorkPlan is a web-based system built upon the standard agency IT network, which will minimize disruptions to users and system administrators as enhancements are developed. In the near future, WorkPlan will feature standardized reports, more user-defined capability, and a tracking module for expenditures, time-charges, and accomplishments.

WorkPlan 's development was sponsored by the Program & Budget staff in the national office, guided by a team representing all levels of the Forest Service, and aided by contractor support.
