The Biosurveillance Portal (BSP) is a web-based tool that currently is being developed by the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense. The BSP will ultimately facilitate collaboration, communication, information sharing, and provide a centralization of biosurveillance resources in support of the detection, management and mitigation of biological events.
