Large-scale events involving multiple disciplines and jurisdictions require the development and management of financial and other practical resources. This course will expose students to the tools needed for forecasting, cost analysis, procurement, and monitoring of funds. A significant portion of the course will be devoted to an in-depth review of the need for mutual aid agreements and will concentrate on the development and refinement of these documents. The course will also cover day-to-day resource management versus methods for managing resources under a National Incident Management System/Incident Command System/National Response Plan operational environment.
