Select ASPR TRACIE TA Responses

The ASPR TRACIE Assistance Center provides personalized support and responses to requests for information and technical assistance (TA). We answer a broad range of questions from all stakeholders – at the federal, state, regional, local, tribal, territory, non-profit, and for-profit levels. The type of requests that we receive are categorized as simple, standard, complex, or urgent depending on the scope of work, resources needed to complete the request, and time frame by which the request can be answered. Simple requests are typically requests for IT support or help with website navigation or functions. Examples of our standard, complex, and urgent requests and the ASPR TRACIE response are included below. TA responses marked with an asterisk (*) appear in more than one category.

As of August 30, 2018, all redacted ASPR TRACIE TA responses can be found in this resource.
