Continuity Planning is for projects that must continue performance in the event of a disaster
- What are your back-up and recovery plans?
- Which team members are responsible for continuity management?
- What are your recovery priorities?
- How you will coordinate your continuity plans with external organizations and third parties?
- What are your plans for facility relocation?
- What training will you provide to ensure that staff know what to do in an emergency?
- How will you test your back-up and recovery plans?
- How will you protect any vital records?
- How often will continuity plans will be reviewed and updated?
Individual sections of the Technical Approach may address back-ups and various contingency alternatives. A continuity plan, which can be part of the Management Plan or a completely separate section, describes these precautions at the project –level; it details how the project as a whole would continue operations in the event of an emergency.
A continuity plan should address plans and procedures for back-ups, relocation, and the implementation of contingency alternatives. A continuity plan should include re-organization and re-constitution of project staffing, back-up recovery and system re-deployment, and relocation. It should address roles and responsibilities, contingency plans, training of project staff, and testing of recovery procedures.
