The Business Plan includes: 

  • Specific cost estimates for each component of the program, including, but not limited to, education and outreach costs, staff costs, and the capital costs, operation costs, and maintenance costs of the system.
  • Identification of specific sources of funding, including, but not limited to, federal funds, funds from revenue bonds, local funds, general funds, special funds, funds from private sources, and funding from any written agreements with public or private entities to fund components of the program.
  • The expected roles and responsibilities of various program participants, including, but not limited to, private sector partners and local emergency personnel.
  • The expected time schedule for completing the system and when it can start to provide alerts.
  • A discussion of all reasonably foreseeable risks the program may encounter, including, but not limited to, risks associated with the program’s finances, the reliability of the system, access to land for sensor placement, and changes in technology. The plan shall describe the office’s strategies, processes, or other actions it intends to utilize to manage those risks.
