  • Demonstration of e-ISuite

    Can replace title with specific meeting information if desired name of geographic area; dates, etc. (e.g. Rocky Mountain Incident Management Team Meeting, April 8, 2014)*Enterprise internet requiredSite Internet optional*e-ISuite will capture all incident costs from initial response through Agency closeoutCritical initial response data is included in the transition file from EnterpriseIt is Critical that IMTs obtain the transition file from the Agency instead of just starting a new incident in SiteConsequences of not getting the transition file is that IA info will be overridden when Site is transitioned to EnterpriseMajor benefits include data mining, increased upward reporting capability and maintaining a complete history of an incident*Depending on time limitations, this slide can be reviewed briefly and the handout can provide additional information.*Separation of duties requires that users are given only the roles necessary to perform their duties. Multiple roles can be assigned. Privileged user accounts have access to assign/remove roles for user accounts. Non-privileged accounts cannot add or remove roles for any user account.*For IMT presentations, this slide can be reviewed briefly or left out, as the IMT will more than likely be using Site. Its included for presentations to groups other than IMTs. *Arrival date will be negotiated with the IMT for a time after the first 2-3 days of the IMT arrival on the incident.Testers will be government SMEs and software development contractor employeesWe dont expect to stay for the entire incident the Lead SME will evaluate and notify IMT of departure scheduleIMT members will be invited to use e-ISuite as their schedules permit*e-ISuite Project Team will conduct the T-t-T sessions with the expectation those attendees will train other users.Geographic Areas will schedule training sessions in coordination with the trainers.*A new e-ISuite webpage is being developed and will be available soon. This webpage address will either re-direct or contain a link to the new webpage.**Do e-ISuite Demo after the I-Suite update.**Recommend using Site instead of Enterprise for speed in navigation.*
