dc.description.abstractThis article argues for a fundamental change in national preparedness guidelines and their requirements from centralized to decentralized governance using management system standards. The federal government's national preparedness requirements encompassed in the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) National Preparedness Guidelines should be replaced by the application o f national or international preparedness management system standards. In addition to calls for preparedness standards, the widespread and growing use of standards is consistent with a number of significant homeland security management developments. These include the general stabilization and institutionalization of the federal homeland security mission and goals, the availability and use of robust preparedness management system standards, challenges in assessing preparedness capabilities, and considerations of federalism and inter governmental relations cooperation. If the Guidelines are replaced by management system standards, then two other issues must be resolved: whether the standards should be mandated and certification or accreditation processes applied.en_US
