Continuity Planning

Business continuity is an essential part of any business plan, demonstrating how the business will operate following an incident (fire, flood, power fault, etc.) and how it expects to return to ‘business as usual’ in the quickest possible time.

This is a crucial document when tendering for work as most will ask to see a business's BCP (business continuity plan).

A business continuity plan (BCP) should include:

  • Identify the business assets (including the people) and processes that are critical to delivering business.
  • Include the initial response to an incident and the longer-term implementation of measures for a return to business as usual.
  • Look at how the business will test and review the BCP (business community plan).
