Complete the following for the project:

  • Develop a comprehensive, strategic 5-year plan for your community relating to current homeland security hazards, risks, and vulnerabilities. 
    • Including the details on how to facilitate or manage the planning process.
  • Your plan must include a training outline that incorporates new members and existing members. 
    • The outline should address the various levels of operation: policy, strategic, tactical, and task.
  • Select an appropriate organizational construct for your region.
    • Determine which agencies will be involved in your larger group, and explain why they belong.
      • Frame the strategic plan from the big-picture point of view, expanding upon the details of the collective group strategic plan.
  • Include the financial plan to support your agency’s strategic plan, training plan, and involvement in a regional collaboration (or other organizational construct).
    • Give detail on your funding sources.
      • This aspect may have a great impact on your selection of an organizational design.
  • Defend each of your decisions and positions, and provide support from your research and from the course materials.

Assignment Guidelines

  • Clearly identify the discipline for which the strategic plan is being developed: emergency management or homeland security.
  • Specifically identify the agencies or the membership of the strategic planning group.
  • Identify the goals and objectives.
  • Identify the method of assessing the environment by using a SWOT analysis or other method.
    • This analysis should be specific.
  • A timeline should be identified listing the key steps in the process.
  • The plan should be written at the strategic level so that the tactical-level members of the organization can use the strategic plan as guidance in developing their operations.
  • A detailed financial plan should be included that specifically identifies normal, emergency, and recovery funding sources from local, state, county, and federal sources.
    • Include the requirements and restrictions of these funding programs. 
  • Provide a list of resources that are available compared to a shortfall of anticipated resources. 
    • List the mutual-aid capacity where these shortfall items may be obtained.
  • Supply a sample MOA that identifies emergency funding, procedures, and policy that support the selection and use of vendors that would be used in lieu of mutual-aid resources.
  • Supply a policy or procedure for emergency purchasing, including a chain-of-command identification by position of function, not by individual name. 
    • This procedure should include actions that address the compromise of the normal flow to ensure that the system will function and not rely upon individuals only.
  • Add a scenario that is based on a strategic planning model (in general terms) that addresses the following:
    • The idea of scenario planning as an alternate method
    • A biological event at the local level. 
      • This may be as simple as community-acquired influenza of no specific origin (a difficult flu season).
  • Be sure to reference all of your sources using APA style
