The Biosurveillance Portal (BSP) is a web-based tool that currently is being developed by the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense. The BSP will ultimately facilitate collaboration, communication, information sharing, and provide a centralization of biosurveillance resources in support of the detection, management and mitigation of biological events. The BSP is being developed based on U.S. Special Operations Command biosurveillance requirements. As additional stakeholders are engaged and the BSP matures it will provide information sharing across the DoD biosurveillance community of interest and other government agencies to promote a whole of government biosurveillance capability.
