OEC What is it?Homeland Security Act of 2002
(2006)
Policy/Guidance development for strengthening
interoperable communications
The OEC supports and promotes the ability of
emergency responders and government officials to
continue to communicate in the event of natural
disasters, acts of terrorism, or other man-made
disasters, and works to ensure, accelerate, and
attain interoperable and operable emergency
communications nationwide.
Our Mission Statement
3
Some OEC Roles and Responsibilities
  • Establish capabilities supporting seamless,
    interoperable communications across government at
    all levels
  • Administer SAFECOM, ICTAP, and IWN
  • Foster development of interoperable emergency
    communications capabilities
  • Conduct outreach to State, local, tribal
    governments (S/L/T)
  • Provide Technical Assistance (TA) in the use of
    interoperable emergency communications to S/L/T
  • Promote Standard Operating Procedures, Best
    Practices, and tools for incident response
    interoperable emergency communications
    capabilities
  • Support the Executive Branch as required

4
OEC Coordination Requirements
  • Coordinate with
  • ST/Office for Interoperability and Compatibility
  • Federal Emergency Management Agency
  • Chief Information Officer
  • National Communications System
  • National Cyber Security Division
  • Emergency Response Community
  • State, local, and tribal governments
  • Other Departments and Agencies
  • Industry partners
  • Other stakeholders as required

5
Public Safety Interoperability Communications
(PSIC) Grants and Statewide Plans
  • OEC is participating in the PSIC Grant process
    with FEMA and NTIA
  • OEC will
  • Provide TA upon request
  • Participate in Peer Reviews to evaluate and
    approve SCIPs
  • Provide TA after SCIPs are approved, if needed

SCIPs and IJs are due on 3 December 2007
6
The Importance of SCIPs
  • The development of a locally-driven,
    multi-jurisdictional, multi-disciplinary SCIP
    will help States and localities
  • Break down the planning, coordination, and
    cooperation barriers of the past
  • Establish a coordinated vision and set strategic
    goals, objectives, and initiatives to enhance
    interoperability
  • Advancing interoperability requires a partnership
    among emergency response organizations across all
    levels of government
  • SCIPs provide OEC with unprecedented data
    regarding the nations level of communications
    operability and interoperability
  • SCIP plans identify status within the key
    elements of the Interoperability Continuum
  • SCIP plans provide OEC with an understanding of
    strategic interoperable planning and
    implementation efforts across the nations

7
National Communications Baseline Assessment
  • Title XVIII of the Homeland Security Act of 2002,
    Section 1803, specifically addresses development
    of a National Communications Baseline Assessment
  • The National Communications Baseline Assessment
    will
  • Define the range of capabilities needed for
    natural disasters, acts of terrorism and other
    man-made disasters for first responders and
    relevant government entities
  • Assess current capabilities
  • Identify seams, gaps, and obstacles
  • Establish a national interoperable emergency
    communications inventory including Federal
    communications information
  • FCC, Commerce, DOD, and others
  • Foundational documents include
  • Interoperability Continuum
  • 2006 Baseline Survey
  • Tactical Interoperable Communications Scorecards
  • Tactical Interoperable Communications Plans
    (TICPs)
  • SCIPsunder development
  • Target Capabilities List

8
National CommunicationsBaseline Assessment
OEC is taking a two-phased approach to ensure
inclusion of the SCIP and IJ submissions
Phase 1 (2007) 1) Leverages existing
assessments, surveys, TICPs, scorecards 2)
Interviews with Federal, local public safety
stakeholders
  • Phase 2 (2008)
  • Includes additional Federal, local agency, and
    private sector information
  • Incorporates State, local, and tribal data found
    in SCIPs

The Result a range of capabilities needed by
the emergency response
providers and relevant government entities
National Emergency Communications Plan
9
National Emergency Communications Plan
  • In cooperation with State, local, and tribal
    governments, Federal departments and agencies,
    emergency response providers, and the private
    sector, OEC will develop a National Emergency
    Communications Plan (NECP) to
  • Provide recommendations to support and promote
    the ability of practitioners and relevant
    government officials to continue to communicate
    in an event
  • Ensure, accelerate, and attain interoperable
    emergency communications nationwide

10
The NECPSetting the Agenda for the Future
  • Going forward, the NECP sets OECs Title 18
    Agenda
  • Emergency Communications Grant Programs and
    Guidance
  • Must be coordinated and consistent with NECP
    goals and recommendations
  • SCIPs and IJs must be consistent with the NECP
  • No IECGP grants will be awarded until the NECP is
    submitted
  • Future Assessments and Reports
  • Measuring progress in meeting NECP goals and
    recommendations
  • Emergency Communications Preparedness Center
  • Annual Strategic Assessment must consider NECP
    goals
  • RECC Assessments of the survivability,
    sustainability, and interoperability of local
    systems
  • Annual reports on the progress of regions in
    meeting NECP goals

11
Emergency Communications Preparedness Center
  • Title XVIII of the Homeland Security Act, 2007,
    as amended, establishes the Emergency
    Communications Preparedness Center (ECPC) as
  • Focal Point and Clearinghouse
  • The ECPC shall serve as the focal point for
    Federal agencies as a clearinghouse for
    activities on interoperable emergency
    communications. The ECPC shall support and
    promote
  • The capability of emergency response providers
    and associated government officials to continue
    to communicate
  • Reduce the duplication of efforts
  • Impediments to achieving interoperable emergency
    communications
  • Strategic Assessment
  • ECPC shall prepare an annual strategic assessment
    regarding the coordination efforts of Federal
    departments and agencies to advance interoperable
    communications.
