From the Purpose and Summary: "S. 4153, the National Response Framework Improvement Act of 2020, requires the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide continuous summaries on any gaps and inefficiencies of the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS or the Department) National Response Framework (NRF) based on any lessons learned from the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. Specifically, as part of the COVID-19 after-action review, FEMA must evaluate the NRF and include updates and recommendations based on the findings. FEMA is required to provide appropriate congressional committees a copy of, and a briefing on, each summary. This bill also requires DHS to conduct biennial evaluations of the NRF, to assess any gaps and inefficiencies. Specifically, the evaluations must also assess processes for interagency information-sharing and training programs. A notification will be provided to appropriate congressional committees after each evaluation."
