A.   How to Use This Plan

In the event of a disaster which interferes with ’s ability to conduct business from one of its offices, this plan is to be used by the responsible individuals to coordinate the business recovery of their respective areas and/or departments.  The plan is designed to contain, or provide reference to, all of the information that might be needed at the time of a business recovery.

This plan is not intended to cover the operations of ’s separately structured Emergency Response Team.

Index of Acronyms: (EOC) EmergencyOperationsCenter – (EMT) Emergency Management Team – (ERT) Emergency Response Team – (BCP) Business Continuity Plan – (IT) Information Technology

 Section I, Introduction, contains general statements about the organization of the plan.  It also establishes responsibilities for the testing (exercising), training, and maintenance activities that are necessary to guarantee the ongoing viability of the plan.

Section II, Business Continuity Strategy, describes the strategy that the Departmentwill control/implement to maintain business continuity in the event of a facility disruption.  These decisions determine the content of the action plans, and if they change at any time, the plans should be changed accordingly.

Section III, Recovery Teams, lists theRecovery Team functions, those individuals who are assigned specific responsibilities, and procedures on how each of the team members is to be notified.

Section IV, Team Procedures, determines what activities and tasks are to be taken, in what order, and by whom in order to affect the recovery.

Section V, Appendices, contains all of the other information needed to carry out the plan.  Other sections refer the reader to one or more Appendices to locate the information needed to carry out the Team Procedures steps.

B.   Objectives



The objective of the Business Continuity Plan is to coordinate recovery of critical business functions in managing and supporting the business recovery in the event of a facilities (office building) disruption or disaster.  This can include short or long-term disasters or other disruptions, such as fires, floods, earthquakes, explosions, terrorism, tornadoes, extended power interruptions, hazardous chemical spills, and other natural or man-made disasters.



A disaster is defined as any event that renders a business facility inoperable or unusable so that it interferes with the organization’s ability to deliver essential business services.

The priorities in a disaster situation are to:

1.      Ensure the safety of employees and visitors in the office buildings. (Responsibility of the ERT)

2.      Mitigate threats or limit the damage that threats can cause. (Responsibility of the ERT)

3.      Have advanced preparations to ensure that critical business functions can continue.

4. Have documented plans and procedures to ensure the quick, effective execution of recovery strategies for critical business functions.

The Business Continuity Plan includes procedures for all phases of recovery as defined in the Business Continuity Strategy section of this document.

C.   Scope



TheBusiness Continuity Plan is limited in scope to recovery and business continuance from a serious disruption in activities due to non-availability of ’s facilities.  The Business Continuity Plan includes procedures for all phases of recovery as defined in the Business Continuity Strategy of this document.  This plan is separate from ’s Disaster Recovery Plan, which focuses on the recovery of technology facilities and platforms, such as critical applications, databases, servers or other required technology infrastructure (see Assumption #1 below).  Unless otherwise modified, this plan does not address temporary interruptions of duration less than the time frames determined to be critical to business operations.



The scope of this plan is focused on localized disasters such as fires, floods, and other localized natural or man-made disasters.  This plan is not intended to cover major regional or national disasters such as regional earthquakes, war, or nuclear holocaust.  However, it can provide some guidance in the event of such a large scale disaster.

D.   Assumptions



The viability of this Business Continuity Plan is based on the following assumptions:

1.      That a viable and tested IT Disaster Recovery Plan exists and will be put into operation to restore data center service at a backup site within five to seven days.

2.      That the Organization’s facilities management department has identified available space for relocation of departments which can be occupied and used normally withintwo to five days of a facilities emergency.

3.      That this plan has been properly maintained and updated as required.

4.      That each department has their own Business Continuity Plan.

5.      The functions and roles referenced in this plan do not have to previously exist within an organization; they can be assigned to one or more individuals as new responsibilities, or delegated to an external third party if funding for such services can be arranged and allocated.

E.    Changes to the Plan/Maintenance Responsibilities


 Maintenance of the Business Continuity Plan is the joint responsibility of the management, the Facilities Management Department, and the Business Continuity Coordinator.


management is responsible for:

1.   Periodically reviewing the adequacy and appropriateness of its Business Continuity strategy.

2.   Assessing the impact on the Business Continuity Plan of additions or changes to existing business functions, procedures, equipment, and facilities requirements.

3.   Keeping recovery team personnel assignments current, taking into account promotions, transfers, and terminations.

4.   Communicating all plan changes to the Business Continuity Coordinator so that the organization’s IT master Disaster Recovery Plan can be updated.

Facilities Management Department management is responsible for:

1.   Maintaining and/or monitoring offsite office space sufficient for critical functions and to meet the facility recovery time frames.

2.   Communicating changes in the “OrganizationITDisaster Recovery Plan” plan that would affect groups/departments to those groups/departments in a timely manner so they can make any necessary changes in their plan.

3.   Communicating all plan changes to the Business Continuity Coordinator so that the master plan can be updated.

The Business Continuity Coordinator is responsible for:

1.   Keeping the organization’s ITRecovery Plan updated with changes made to facilities plans.

2.   Coordinating changes among plans and communicating to management when other changes require them to update their plans.

F.    Plan Testing Procedures and Responsibilities


managementis responsible for ensuring the workability of their Business Continuity Plan.  This should be periodically verified by active or passive testing.


G.   Plan Training Procedures and Responsibilities


management is responsible for ensuring that the personnel who would carry out the Business Continuity Plan are sufficiently aware of the plan’s details. This may be accomplished in a number of ways including; practice exercises, participation in tests, and awareness programs conducted by the Business Continuity Coordinator.
