Operational Readiness Review Timing Estimates Needed

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), in coordination with CDC Division of State and Local Readiness (DSLR), are seeking volunteers from state, local, and territorial public health departments who are interested in tracking how long it takes to prepare and complete the newest version of CDC’s 2017 ORR data collection forms. For this volunteer activity, health departments can use a spreadsheet to track how long it takes to complete each ORR form. CDC will use the timing data compiled by health departments to help inform future ORR development efforts. This will not impact scoring of the health department’s ORR assessment.

Interested volunteers who will be completing their ORR before June 30, 2018 should send the completed spreadsheet to the below representative upon submission of all ORR forms in DCIPHER:

States are encouraged to forward this announcement to local MCM coordinators within their states who will be completing their ORRs by June 30, 2018. Those who are not completing the ORR by June 30, 2018 may still use this tracking spreadsheet for internal planning purposes.
