We are beginning to observe the management challenges for global security dealing with disease outbreaks. The rapid movement and migration of the world population as well as the transfer of resources across different regions provides immense challenges for developing improved surveillance systems for effectively coordinating our efforts to global security challenges faced by disease outbreaks. There are considerable efforts to collect case data during disease outbreaks (DO) from the spread of infections perspective. However, research for developing reliable framework for the collection of inter-organizational coordination (IOC) response data is lacking to date. Our objective here is to introduce a corpus that can be used in designing and capturing IOC data for facilitating empirical analysis of evolution of networks in a coordinated effort to DO. Since this is new domain, we introduce the main qualitative questions that will discover the characteristics of such coordination and propose a corpus or schema that can be used to classify the quantitative data collection and preparation for further empirical analysis.
