Questions related to legal questions in sharing arrangements should be addressed in Phase Two of the Roadmap to Develop Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing Initiatives.
Examples of issues to consider:
- Are there issues related to personnel and vendor contracts (e.g., benefits, collective bargaining agreements, procurement processes, etc.)?
- Are there any liability and insurance issues to be addressed?
- Does the CJS agreement conform to local and/or state rules, policies and procedures?
Resources to help answer these questions can be found below the line.

The resources are part of the Center’s CJS Resource Library, which contains best practices, lessons learned and tools that can help jurisdictions considering or adopting cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) arrangements. While most tools and resources in the library primarily focus on public health CJS, some address public sector CJS more broadly.
