Abstract : A review was made of the past development of National Resource Evaluation Center's capabilities with emphasis upon four analytical systems, namely: (1) A damage assessment system. (2) A hazard analysis system. (3) A supply-requirement analysis system pertaining to survival items, and (4) A prototype post-attack program development system. A program was described for familiarizing OEP and other personnel with this prototype post-attack program development system (PARM). Plans were reviewed for new inter-industry models, including: (1) The Recovery Model now in development by NPA. (2) A National Economic Strength Model initiated in NREC with NPA assistance. (3) A Regionalized Model which will be started next fiscal year, if funds are available. Plans were reviewed for development of statistical projection models. A description was given of certain facets of the National Resource Evaluation Program which, in an emergency, would support federal field activities and which would facilitate the flow and assimilation of reports from the field.
