Title: Consultant to JFSP for Completion of IFT-DSS

Project Proposal Abstract: The Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) seeks a science advisor to serve as a consultant to the Joint Fire Science Program Manager for the completion of the Interagency Fuels Treatment Decision Support System (IFT-DSS). Phase I of the IFT-DSS study (April 2007 to March 2008) consisted of a rigorous problem analysis leading to the identification of the strategic dimensions of the problem area and identifying strategic solution strategies. Phase II (April 2008 to March 2009) focused on working with stakeholder groups to write a conceptual design document for the Interagency Fuels Treatment Decision Support System (IFT-DSS) and a software architecture design document. Phase III (April 2009 to March 2010) saw the implementation of version 1.0.0 of IFT-DSS and the development and deployment of a comprehensive Communications Plan targeted at stakeholder community involvement in the project. Version 1.0.0 of IFT-DSS served the purpose of a Proof of Concept (POC) to demonstrate the viability of the functional objectives and the web-based, distributed Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework. All project reports are available for public access on the web site: . JFSP plans to support the continuing development of IFT-DSS for approximately 2 years leading to the completion of the implementation of the planned functions and the SOA backbone framework. Following the completion of IFT-DSS, the NWCG Fuels Management Committee will take over full governance and financial management of the project and oversee its migration to a government server computer center for all future operations. JFSP is currently working to contract a software vendor to perform this work over the next 5 years.
