GSA's National Security Guidance for Federal Agencies and Federal Building Operators   [open pdf - 6MB]

For the purpose of this report, GSA refers to U.S. General Services Administration. "In the post-September 11 environment, prudent steps must be identified and put in place not only to safeguard federal facilities but to enable essential services to continue, if at all possible, in the event utility services are interrupted. This is neither a new requirement nor a novel expectation. At any time, a fire, flood, earthquake, tornado or other Act of God could disrupt utility service. And one need only think back to concern over the Year 2000 Problem and the manner in which federal facility operators prepared for every conceivable contingency. Just as federal agencies prepared responsibly and effectively for that scenario, so we must expect that utility interruptions will occur in the near future -- perhaps on a wide scale -- and prepare accordingly. The purpose of this guide is to acquaint facility operators across the Federal government with general approaches as well as specific procedures recommended by GSA."
