LLIS Best Practice: State and Local Government Continuity of Operations Planning: Elements of a Continuity of Operations Plan   [open pdf - 77KB]

"COOP [continuity of operations] planning encompasses three types of plans that describe how the plan will be developed and carried out. Jurisdictions should begin by developing a strategic plan for achieving COOP goals. The basic COOP plan itself will include key elements such as the identification of essential functions, delegation of authorities, order of succession, protection of vital documents and systems, alternate operating locations, communications plans, and a plan for tests, training, and exercises. Finally, each agency must develop a response plan that details the initiation, implementation, and termination of the COOP plan."
