The Institute provides information, management tools and specialist technical advice to assist the Federal and State Governments, the emergency services and organisations in Australia to enhance their management capabilities.  Such advice and assistance encourages a synergistic and dynamic relationship between the development and application of policy and strategic doctrine, critical analysis, management systems and operational procedures.

The Institute has an established track record of high quality consultancy for the public and private sectors and not-for-profit organisations to evaluate their existing systems and procedures, and to make recommendations based on international best practice on resilience.  Such evaluations are objective, independent and balanced.
