Continuity of Operations Plans for Transportation Agencies

The objective of this project is to develop guidelines for state and local transportation agencies to develop, implement, maintain, train, and exercise COOP capabilities. The guidelines are expected to be applied by designated agency continuity planners using templates to customize COOP plans for their local conditions. Planning is an essential first step in developing COOP capabilities; an effective plan incorporates activities implementing, maintaining, training, and exercising COOP capabilities. A designated agency continuity planner charged with developing a COOP plan should be able to use the templates and guidelines to draft a COOP plan appropriate for his or her organization. The templates and guidelines should provide a managed and measurable process to ensure continuation of essential operations.
