What is Continuity of Operations (COOP)?



Article ID: KB11886 KB Last Updated: 23 Sep 2020Version: 4.0

This article provides more information about Continuity of Operations (COOP).



I have heard about Continuity of Operations (COOP) and would like more information on this.



Although the exact meaning and definition of COOP can vary widely among organizations and individuals, it is critical to establish a common understanding of what COOP means. The most comprehensive and far reaching definition of COOP to date is included in Federal Preparedness Circular (FPC) 65, dated June 15, 2004, which defines COOP as:

"The activities of individual departments and agencies and their sub-components to ensure that their essential functions are performed. This includes plans and procedures that:

  • Delineate essential functions;

  • Specify succession to office and the emergency delegation of authority;

  • Provide for the safekeeping of vital records and databases;

  • Identify alternate operating facilities;

  • Provide for interoperable communications; and validate the capability through tests, training, and exercises."
