National Critical Infrastructure Sector Coordination: Aviation Mode of the Transportation Sector

Related: Resilience

Sector Coordinating Councils (SCCs) have been established under the guidance of the US Department for Homeland Security (DHS) as a way to reinforce a business sector’s resilience against terrorist attacks and other threats to the nation’s infrastructure. SCCs are self-organized by a sector’s owners and operators to facilitate communications and priority setting and to serve as a point of contact with the government on security and critical infrastructure protection. Government Coordinating Councils (GCCs) are the government counterpart entity comprising the agencies most involved with a particular sector. Meridian Institute provided process design and facilitation services to a number of SCCs as they got organized and began their work.


For the Aviation mode of the Transportation sector, Meridian staff worked with the newly formed Aviation GCC to establish its priorities and identify potential early members of an aviation SCC. Meridian then worked with members of the private sector to stand up and provide initial facilitation to the aviation SCC.
