NASPO Hosts Procurement Tabletop Exercise

On May 18-19, NASPO and over 20 other organizations, including state, federal, association, and academic partners, joined together for a Procurement Tabletop Exercise (PTTX). This meeting used a COVID-19 scenario and supplemental discussion to identify areas that can better prepare all parties for future emergency response by identifying partnerships and developing communication networks.

From this meeting, NASPO will create an Action Report and develop future meetings to test the response plans generated through that Report. For more information and a list of partners who attended the meeting, visit here.
