The ultimate goal of any Continuance of Operation Plan (COOP) is to ensure that an organization is capable of conducting its essential missions and functions under all threats and conditions. While the severity and consequences of an emergency cannot be predicted, effective contingency planning can minimize the impact on the University missions, personnel, and facilities.
The overall purpose of this IT Continuance Plan is to ensure the continuance of the IT essential functions under all conditions. The current changing threat environment and recent emergencies, including acts of nature, accidents, technological emergencies, and military or terrorist attack-related incidents, have increased the need for viable continuance capabilities and plans that enable organizations to continue essential functions in an all-hazards environment and across a spectrum of emergencies.
This IT COOP framework is a work in progress and includes a corrective action plan. It is being shared for informational purposes only.
