Baseline

This Report established baseline operational standards and to outline the capabilities necessary for fully operational fusion centers. By achieving the baseline capabilities, a fusion center will have the necessary structures, processes, and tools in place to support the fusion process.

It is an addendum to the U.S. Department of Justice's (DOJ) [[Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative]]’s (Global) Fusion Center Guidelines, which provide guidance to ensure that fusion centers are established and operated consistently across the country.

By achieving this baseline level of capability, a fusion center will have the necessary structures, processes, and tools in place to support the gathering, processing, analysis, and dissemination of terrorism, homeland security, and law enforcement information. This baseline level of capability will support specific operational capabilities , such as Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR); Alerts, Warnings, and Notifications; Risk Assessments; and Situational Awareness Reporting.
