Arkansas Continuity of Operations Plans

Continuity of Operations (COOP) is the effort within individual agencies to ensure they can continue to perform their mission essential functions during a wide range of emergencies. It’s the initiative that ensures that governments, departments, businesses and agencies are able to continue their essential daily functions. COOP requires planning for any event – natural, man-made, technological threats and national security emergency – causing an agency to relocate its operations to an alternate or other continuity site to assure continuance of its essential functions.

COOP is simply good business practice. COOP Plans address orders of succession, delegations of authority, continuity facilities, continuity communications, essential records management, human resources, testing, training, exercising, devolution, and reconstitution. FEMA offers guidance to non-federal entities here: http://www.fema.gov/pdf/about/org/ncp/coop/continuity_guidance_circular.pdf.
