Rationale & related CM function(s)

Crisis Communications and Information Management (CCIM) capabilities and procedures of stakeholders need to be understood so that interoperability issues are identified in a timely manner.
Coordination across state agencies, local authorities, private entities, and volunteer organisations is needed in developing crisis communications and information management documentation and procedures.
Consultation and coordination among stakeholders in the development of communications policy, plans and procedures will facilitate the exchange of crisis relevant information prior to and during a crisis.
Early identification of information exchange requirements will guide the development of communications capabilities and interfaces and thus facilitate interoperability.
Coordination among stakeholders in defining procedures for information management will facilitate the exchange of crisis related information.
The provision of communications and information support by certain organisations (e.g. professional responders) to other stakeholders (e.g. local authorities, private actors, volunteers) will facilitate interoperability.
