From the Purpose: "Continuity planning is simply the good business practice of ensuring the execution of essential functions and provision of critical services and core capabilities through all circumstances. Today's threat environment and the potential for no-notice emergencies, including localized natural hazards, accidents, technological emergencies and terrorist-related incidents, underscore the need for strong continuity planning that enables all communities, organizations and entities to continue essential functions across a broad spectrum of emergencies. This 'Guide to Continuity Program Management' expands on continuity program management guidance found in the Continuity Guidance Circular (CGC) and Federal Continuity Directives (FCD) 1 and 2. It provides guidance and templates to assist continuity program managers and planners to develop a Multi-Year Strategic Plan (MYSP), project plans and a multi-year test, training and exercise (TT&E) calendar. This guide does not address development of a continuity of operations plan. For information and guidance on how to develop a continuity of operations plan, refer to the Continuity Resource Toolkit, which contains guidance documents and templates."
