Continuity of Operations (COOP) Implementation Plan

The Office of Science (SC) Continuity of Operations (COOP) Implementation Plan is required by DOE Order 150.1, Continuity Programs. This plan outlines the actions SC will take to perform its essential functions in the event of an emergency or situation that is a major disruption to normal SC Headquarters (HQ) operations. These emergencies include natural disasters; accidents; military, biological or terrorist attacks; pandemic incidents; and technological disruptions.

The SC COOP Implementation Plan explains the DOE/NNSA COOP notification and decision-making process and implementation of SC procedures, including notification of staff to ensure a sufficient response.

This SC COOP Implementation Plan is applicable to all SC HQ elements, facilities, and personnel. This SC COOP Implementation Plan enables the continuance of essential functions of SC for limited duration operation (30 days for 24 hour / 7 day operation or 60 days in a pandemic disease event) and enables SC to implement methods to safeguard personnel, records, and facilities, and ensures the capability to conduct functions at an office of convenience, Alternate Operating Facility (AOF), or devolution site until the resumption of normal operations.
