Business, Academic & Research Continuity Planning

Department: 
Emergency Management (UWEM)
Problem: 

All UW departments are required by University policy to have business continuity plans. Currently, few departments have such plans, and developing them is perceived as prohibitively complex and time-consuming.

Goal: 
  • 10% of departments have completed plans by June 2012
  • 100% of Seattle-campus departments have completed initial plans by June 2016
Launch Date: 
July 2011
