Download Playbook

Get insight and guidance for public and private supply chain partners on collaborative planning strategies and supporting the national preparedness response framework. This collaborative monitoring effort would be accomplished through a regular meeting cadence of federal partners and medical product supply chain leaders. Monitoring activities will build an understanding of current conditions relating to the three phases of supply chain health:

  • Green: Normal/Standard Operations
  • Yellow: Strained Operations
  • Red: Critical Conditions that severely disrupt operations

The collaborated process outlined in this playbook recommends:

  • The key activities of the partnership;
  • The roles of each partner;
  • The triggers for moving to a different phase in the process;
  • The decision options/actions to mitigate the supply chain disruption; and
  • How to rebalance as supply chain health returns to normal operations.
