Framework for Voluntary Preparedness

Author: Alfred P. Sloan Committee/DRI

DRI chaired the Alfred P. Sloan Committee that drafted the Framework for Preparedness that has been the foundation for Title IX Implementation. DRI was proud to join the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in the release of the “Framework for Voluntary Preparedness—Briefing Regarding Private Sector Approaches to Title IX of H.R. 1 and Public Law 110-53, Implementing 9/11 Commission Recommendations Act of 2007” and honored to be an instrumental part of the interdisciplinary team convened by the foundation to address the need for a well-informed and reasoned approach to the critical issues involving the creation of the “Voluntary Certification and Accreditation Program” set forth in Section 524 of this new legislation. Especially noteworthy was the historic collaboration of the American Society of Industrial Security (ASIS), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS), all of whom worked shoulder to shoulder with DRI International to generate this important work. The Sloan Report helped guide the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in implementing a positive and realistic program for a voluntary business preparedness certification. Then DRI International Executive Director Alan Berman served as co-chairman of the interdisciplinary team that drafted the report.
