9 Plan Contents

WithJim Rowan, Sharon Rowan

The mission statement should establish responsibilities for call types, plan development, activation of the plan, and maintenance of the plan. The mission statement should also include a time frame for the plan to be completed. It should conclude by restating the desire of the company to continue operations and to protect and safeguard the assets of the company. The rationale for the time frame needs some basis. It has to fit the amount of money that company is willing to spend to have a proper continuity/disaster recovery plan. The plan should include some sort of active list of contact personnel with telephone numbers. This list will change, so the best thing to do is to create if on some sort of database together with the rest of the plan. Plan provisions and checklists for all departments should describe the procedure for reporting to the incident manager.
