BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLANNING
As part of OCAD’s ongoing commitment to the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors, we have developed a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and Pandemic Plan as part of OCAD’s Emergency Preparedness Plan (EPP). Each department is responsible for preparing its own departmental BCP using "OCAD Ready."
OCAD Ready is an intuitive, online, step-by-step, web-based tool, which will enable you to easily create a comprehensive BCP for your department that will identify:
- critical functions performed by your department, and the resources needed for their continuance;
- information and strategies to help you function during the business interruption and upon resumption of operations; and
- action items that can be performed prior to an interruption that will help you and your staff manage and cope during and following an interruption.
Your Departmental BCP will be an invaluable strategic tool for identification and assessment of, preparation for, and response to any business interruption.
