Emergency Management and Homeland Security: Interagency Collaboration - Emergency!

by David E. Booher and Adam Sutkus

Center for Collaborative Policy, California State University Sacramento


This is a six-party negotiation among public officials to develop a plan to utilize federal funds for emergency preparedness, agree on an on-going working relationship, and develop a press strategy to engage the public in the planning. The objective of the meeting is to develop an interagency memorandum of understanding (MOU) and a joint press strategy. This role play works best if participants already have experience with interest-based negotiation. One of the players must both represent his/her agency and serve as facilitator of the meeting. The role play materials include both general information and confidential information for each of the players.
