The memorandum was produced by the Executive Session on Domestic Preparedness, a working group of domestic preparedness specialists, elected officials, federal agency representatives, and academics that convenes semi-annually at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University. The memorandum highlights issues of particular importance to practitioners at the state and local level. The ideas put forth in the document have emerged from several meetings of Executive Session members, all of whom are engaged in some aspect of domestic preparedness. The members and staff of the Executive Session on Domestic Preparedness are ready to explore any issues of interest to the Office of Homeland Security as it undertakes the challenge of coordinating domestic preparedness efforts across the country.
