A new fire management paradigm reflects broadening goals, increased responsibilities, the need for interagency systems, and heightened performance accountability. Current program analysis models developed in a previous era can no longer support the expanded responsibilities and expectations for this new paradigm. We outline and discuss principles and major components of a new strategy-level, interagency program analysis system. The principles and system components are presented, not as a solution, but as a point of departure in stimulating professional dialogue toward a new system for fire management and planning.
