Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plan

Business Continuity Plans (BCPs) help to ensure the availability of government services, programs, and operations, including all resources involved, and the timely resumption of services in the event of a major failure, emergency, or disaster. Good coordination and liaison involving inter-ministry activities and service providers is critical to restoring business operations during and following an interruption.
