  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response Division of State and Local Readiness (DSLR) administers the Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) cooperative agreement program. The PHEP program helps build and strengthen public health systems that are ready to respond and recover from public health emergencies. CDC's Operational Readiness Review (ORR) is a rigorous, evidence-based assessment used to evaluate PHEP program planning and operational functions. The ORR is a tool used to measure a jurisdiction’s ability to execute a large emergency response requiring medical countermeasure (MCM) distribution and dispensing. The intended outcome of this assessment is to identify strengths and challenges facing preparedness programs and to offer opportunities for improvement and technical assistance. By June 30, 2022, all PHEP recipients and all Cities Readiness Initiative (CRI) local planning jurisdictions should be able to • Use risk assessments to guide preparedness planning for the jurisdiction. • Develop and update risk-based, all-hazards emergency plans. • Conduct trainings, drills, and exercises with jurisdictional partners, including those representing people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs. This document provides specific guidance on how to complete a self-assessment and complete a review using the Data Collation and Integration for Public Health Event Response (DCIPHER) platform. All 62 PHEP recipients as well as CRI local planning jurisdictions are required to participate in the ORR process. State recipients are not only responsible for ensuring their statewide planning and operational function, but also for reviewing local CRI jurisdictions’ submitted forms within their state, and monitoring, tracking, and evaluating local activities.
