Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP)

What is COOP?

An effort, within individual executive departments and agencies, to ensure that Primary Mission Essential Functions (PMEFs) continue to be performed during a wide range of emergencies, including localized acts of nature, accidents and technological or attack-related emergencies.

Why is COOP important?

COOP planning fosters recovery and survival in and after emergency situations.

COOP establishes processes and procedures that allow for the continuation of essential functions when you can’t be in your normal workspace, or a significant portion of your staff is absent (I.E. COVID-19).
