Today, we are pleased to offer a complimentary Pandemic Business Resilience Assessment questionnaire for revealing business continuity gaps and supply chain risks related to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Part of the Prevalent platform’s Business Resilience Assessment suite, the Pandemic Assessment includes a survey for your internal business units, plus another for your external supply chain vendors.

Internal and External Questions for Assessing COVID-19 Resilience

Prevalent’s complimentary Pandemic Business Resilience Assessment enables you to evaluate business response plans for COVID-19 and other pandemics – both internally and among vendors in your supply chain.

Free Internal Survey for Your Business Units

Check the maturity of your organization’s COVID-19 response processes and governance against best practices for crisis management.

By issuing this assessment to internal business units, you can identify potential gaps and weaknesses that are often overlooked when organizations mobilize their workforces. It covers key pandemic planning considerations through 18 multiple-choice questions that assess pandemic management maturity and associated operational risks.

The internal assessment (pictured in the Prevalent platform) makes it easy to gauge the preparedness and resilience of your organization’s internal business units.

Free External Survey for Your Suppliers

Quickly gauge the pandemic’s potential impact on your supply chain vendors and their ability to manage service outages.

With nine multiple-choice questions, this assessment is designed to quickly collect relevant data from your vendors. This makes it easy to gather the information you need to make immediate, informed decisions regarding emerging supply chain disruptions. Focus areas include:

  • Service and criticality qualification
  • Current and projected pandemic impacts
  • Process preparedness
  • Operating locations and changes
  • Communication mechanisms and timeframes
  • Key contacts

The questions can also serve as a baseline for more extensive vendor risk and compliance assessments to be conducted once the crisis has abated.
