1. What is ASTHO's role? **New**

With funding from CDC, ASTHO hosts the new BioSense environment and facilitates a governance body of state and local health stakeholders that represent all BioSense 2.0 users.

2. What will be the governance for BioSense 2.0?

The users will preside over BioSense 2.0 using a representative governance model. During FY 2012, in addition to managing the new system, ASTHO will develop a BioSense 2.0 Charter in collaboration with Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), and International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS). The Charter will specify the authorities and policies of an elected BioSense governance body. At a minimum, stakeholders will be able to comment on early iterations of this charter through the BioSense Redesign Collaboration Web Site .
