Continuity of Operations (COOP)

Continuity of Operations (COOP) plans are vital to the operation of state government; ensuring State Agencies and Department's primary essential functions continue to be performed during a wide range of emergencies, including localized acts of nature, accidents and technological or attack-related emergencies.  Failure to have an updated COOP plans could jeopardize future federal funding in some instances.

State Administrative Policy #0024 requires agencies and departments have an up-to-date COOP plan on file with BGS Security.   We are currently in the middle of a statewide COOP update, allowing for one section update each month until April 2017. This is an intensive process that requires a basic understanding and knowledge of Continuity.  

All  COOP plans should be signed by your Secretary/Commissioner by May 1, 2017 and the signed copy should be mailed to the Office of Security - 6 Baldwin St, Montpelier, VT 05633
