Business Continuity Planning
Business continuity planning is a proactive approach to enhance our understanding of the connections between critical processes and how a disruption will impact those processes as well as the college. Through planning, we develop a Continuity of Operations Plan which includes a predetermined strategy outlining how the college will continue (or resume), restore, and recover critical processes in the event of a business disruption.
At Central Piedmont, we use Kuali Ready to create and store all of our Continuity of Operations Plans. Access the Kuali Ready site
Central Piedmont Enterprise-Wide Business Continuity Plan (BCP)
Central Piedmont Community College is committed to business continuity management and the resilience of its campus operations. Central Piedmont defines business continuity management as the implementation of plans and tools in response to the business impact analyses undertaken of its operational and administrative functions.
The overriding objectives of the Business Continuity Plan (BCP) are to service the needs of Central Piedmont’s students, employees, faculty, and the community to preserve value and ensure the safety of people. It will detail the Central Piedomont overall response and recovery structure, departmental/ functional roles and responsibilities, and the resources required to minimize the impact of an unplanned or anticipated disruption to Central Piedmont and its operations. Additionally, this document details the procedures that will be carried out by individual department/functions in the event of any disruption. The BCP also provides for training, exercising, and plan maintenance.
The BCP is organized to allow one to quickly determine the appropriate actions and activities necessary to recover. It is a combination of checklists, reference documents, and training aids. The various recovery strategies and procedures should be reviewed and followed based on the circumstances of the incident and approved by the Core Response Team (CRT).
