Operation Warp Speed says its vaccine allocation IT platform, Tiberius, can track inventory at zip code level.
"Tiberius is the system of record for all allocations of Covid-19 vaccines," said Deacon Maddox, OWS Chief of Plans, Operations and Analysis, on a call Monday with reporters.
Maddox said the system pulls material from multiple federal databases into one place, down to zip-code-specific hospitalization data and vaccine inventory.
The system can help compute each jurisdiction's vaccine allowance based on population and the number of doses available, Maddox said. States can then place orders with OWS weekly for any amount of doses, up to their maximum allocation.
The system can also populate a microplanning application for each state or jurisdiction. Tiberius contains information about hospitals, pharmacies, long-term care facilities, ultra-cold storage locations, and Covid-19 case rates and death rates broken down by zip code or county, to help states decide how much vaccine they need.
All pertinent information in the federal data inventory has been made available to states in the microplanning portion of the system -- including the Census Bureau, the HHS Protect data hub, and the CDC's VTrckS database, Maddox said.
"We make it available to them, so that they can see it all in one place, and make their plans accordingly," he said.
The system also provides "what we call in the army 'decision support,'" Maddox said. This includes details on vaccine inventory levels.
Once states place an order, the platform can track where vaccine shipments are physically located. "We already have agreements in place with FedEx, UPS, McKesson to bring this data into the platform," he said. "Jurisdictions -- all 64 plus entities -- have at least one account to receive and view their allocations," he said.
