White Paper
Sparing for a system is challenging. You want to have enough parts on hand to maintain a level of system availability that’s high enough to meet your operational and customer support commitments, but you also don’t want to invest in unnecessary service parts. The ASM® sparing model gives you the ability to pick an inventory strategy that balances operational risk and cost.
OpenPolicy™
White Paper
Imagine you needed to find very specific knowledge about a regulation. You’d start by typing keywords into a search engine, scanning the results, and then sifting through possibly scores of PDF or other text files. The OpenPoliy™ search service is a solution for extracting related knowledge from large collections of complex documents such as directives, regulations, manuals, and other instructions. Massive amounts of information, and more importantly knowledge, is virtually locked away in these electronic files of written prose. And, that body of knowledge is growing ever larger while the workforce is shrinking and growing younger.

Report
The Disaster Recovery Positions Library (DRPL) is a catalog of position descriptions related to long-term disaster recovery. Following a disaster, a local government may need to fill many of the positions listed in the library. The position descriptions within the DRPL represent the minimum criteria for a particular capability and offer a consistent framework for identifying and inventorying recovery-related human resources.
Report
The Disaster Recovery Staffing Guide discusses the steps for recovery staffing both pre-disaster and post-disaster. The guide address critical recovery–related concerns, including coordination techniques, organizational setup, and the staffing process.
Report
A very infectious, but relatively mild influenza pandemic of the novel H1N1 virus (the “swine flu”) began early in 2009. The first reported and confirmed case was in Mexico City, and it was made public March 18, 2009. The first cases in the United States were discovered very soon after in California. By June, when the World Health Organization declared a global pandemic, a total of 74 countries and territories had reported laboratory-confirmed H1N1 infections. During the pandemic, health and governmental organizations began documenting the spread of the disease and collecting data and lessons learned from the experience. Most organizations concentrated on the health-related effects. The LMI Research Institute had a different focus: making recommendations for local, state, and federal improvements in pandemic preparedness and response, with a focus on the infrastructure, economy, and supply chain. In this report, we recommend making pandemic planning bidirectional, continuing to provide top-down guidance on response ideals and using bottom-up planning from the capacity and resource perspectives. We also identified 18 actions to improve any future pandemic response efforts.
