Presidential Policy Directive 8 requires a National Preparedness Report (NPR), an annual report summarizing the progress made toward building, sustaining, and delivering the 31 core capabilities described in the National Preparedness Goal. As the NPR coordinator, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency worked with the full range of whole community partners, including all levels of government, private and nonprofit sectors, faith-based organizations, communities, and individuals to develop the NPR. Specifically, FEMA collaborated with federal interagency partners to identify quantitative and qualitative performance and assessment data for each of the 31 core capabilities. In addition, FEMA integrated data from the 2011 State Preparedness Reports, statewide self-assessments of core capability levels submitted by all 56 U.S. states and territories through a standardized survey. Finally, FEMA conducted research to identify recent, independent evaluations, surveys, and other supporting data related to core capabilities.
