Continuity of Operations

The OSY Continuity Program staff manages the Departmental continuity programs consisting of the Continuity of Government (COG) and the Continuity of Operations (COOP) programs. These programs are managed in accordance with Presidential Policy Directive (PPD)-40 and the appropriate Federal Continuity Directives. Through tests, training and exercises, the staff effectively plans for, controls and evaluates all interagency level exercises for these programs, in accordance with the National Exercise Program. Additionally, they oversee the involvement of the Department’s leadership in interagency senior level exercises (e.g., Eagle Horizon).
