This is an executive branch agency and I see no reason to legislate & micromanage this agency. They are working on preparedness constantly in addition to many other projects. This type of exercise stands to be chaos as it will be too big to manage. And to obtain any lessons learned so the we are even better prepared will require test planning and documentation, training for personnel whether perm, contracted or local agency personnel. That alone is an 18-24 month task. And really, what will be gained. I say let the agency do its business and expertise. Let them run exercises on a much smaller scale. I'm a business analyst and project manager consultant. I do this for a living. I would highly discourage any of my clients from approaching any goal this way.
