From the Introduction: "President Obama signed Presidential Policy Directive (PPD) 8: National Preparedness in March 2011. PPD-8 is aimed at strengthening the security and resilience of the United States through systematic preparation for the threats that pose the greatest risk to the security of the Nation. PPD-8 defined five mission areas--Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery--and directed the development of a series of policy and planning documents to enhance national preparedness. As part of this effort, PPD-8 required the development of a National Planning System to integrate planning across all levels of government and with the private and nonprofit sectors around key capabilities that can be mixed and matched, as needed, to provide an agile, flexible approach to prevent, protect, mitigate, respond, and recover. […] This FIOP [Federal Interagency Operational Plan] builds upon the National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF), which sets the strategy and doctrine for how the whole community builds, sustains, and delivers the Recovery core capabilities identified in the National Preparedness Goal. This FIOP describes the concept of operations for integrating and synchronizing existing national-level Federal capabilities to support local, state, tribal, territorial, insular area, and Federal plans, and is supported by Federal department-level operational plans, where appropriate. […] The Recovery FIOP describes how the Federal Government delivers core capabilities for the Recovery mission area. It is an all-hazards plan that provides guidance for the implementation of the NDRF. The mission of the Recovery FIOP is to provide guidance to enable more effective delivery of recovery support to disaster-impacted local, state, tribal, territorial, and insular area jurisdictions."
