National Incident Management System Compliance Al Fluman, Acting Director Incident Management Systems Division (IMSD), National Integration Center
State/Local NIMS Implementation Fiscal YearState and Local Implementation RequirementsCertification Process FY 2005States and territories must meet minimum FY 05 NIMS implementation requirements; Tribal and local governments encouraged to start implementing the NIMS Self Certification: the state, taken as a whole, has met the minimum FY 2005 requirements. State certification is required to receive FY 2006 preparedness funds. FY 2006States, territories, tribes and local governments must meet the FY 06 NIMS implementation requirements Self Certification: the State (including its tribal and local jurisdictions) has met the minimum FY 2006 requirements. State certification is required to receive FY 2007 preparedness funds. FY 2007 and out-years NIMS compliance is required for all federal preparedness funds. States, territories, tribes and local governments continue to implement the NIMS and meet any additional requirements as identified by the NIMS Integration Center to ensure the continued success of the NIMS. State certification of ongoing NIMS compliance requirements based on established criteria and metrics and DHS monitoring. NIMS compliance continues to be required to receive federal preparedness funds.
Where is the success in NIMS compliance (generally)? Successes: All 56 State and Territories governments receiving Federal Preparedness Assistance have self certified for FY 2005 and FY 2006 FYs : Signed Self-certification Letter Required of States List initial measures reached Detail “Good faith” efforts underway All 56 States and Territories submitted letter Promotion of intrastate mutual aid agreements Completing the NIMS Awareness Training Courses
Where are the problem areas in compliance, what are the Shortfalls (generally) FYs : No single source for reporting on NIMS implementation FYs : NIMS implementation not effectively written into State EOP’s FYs : NIMCAST Reporting Voluntary; not all states and local governments established accounts Inconsistency in approach to assessment
State and Local Government NIMS Compliance Going Forward—Beyond FY2007 FY2007 NIMS implementation required actions included metrics; With the completion of the FY 2007 Actions, State, territorial, tribal and local jurisdictions will have the foundational support for future NIMS implementation and compliance Future refinement of the NIMS will evolve as policy and technical issues are further developed and clarified Additional requirements issued by the NIMS Integration Center will constitute NIMS compliance in FY 2008 and beyond Effective and consistent implementation of the NIMS nationwide will result in a strengthened national capability to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from any type of incident.
NIMS Compliance Metrics Tiers Tier 1 Metrics: Required for FY 2007 NIMS Compliance Jurisdictions must record affirmative answers Mechanism to measure performance Establish targets for FY 2008 FY 2008: DHS G&T validates responses for Tier 1 metrics Tier 2 Metrics: These questions monitor ongoing (FYs ) NIMS implementation activities, Jurisdictions are not required to record an affirmative answer to achieve FY 2007 Compliance Answers to these questions must be submitted Inform the NIC on successes, gaps, and shortfalls Establish targets for FY 2008 (potentially)
