The Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity Plans for all agencies of the executive branch of state government and Higher Education are due annually on Sept. 1.
The purpose of this service area is to provide state entities a common source of planning tools to address Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery requirements. Since there are a wide range of differences between agencies, higher education institutions and other state organizations, the Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) has provided 3 different templates. OMES has also provided a toolkit from the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) that explains the strategic importance and the tactical value of preparing and developing these plans.
These documents, including the toolkit, are designed around checklists that can be used to prepare the agency plan(s). OMES recommends that customers review the toolkit first to become familiar with the process in general, which can simplify selecting the template that best fits agency needs. The templates are designed to be modular and to address the areas of consequence for both business and technology functions.
Review existing plans for needed changes or missing requirements as outlined in the State "Information Security Policy, Procedures and Guidelines." Specific requirements are found in Chapter 8 of that document.
Submit a copy of the updated or new plan to OMES not later than Sept. 1. Plans may be submitted in Microsoft Word or PDF format. Printed copies are not acceptable, only an electronic format will suffice.
This service is available for all Oklahoma state agencies, offices, officers, bureaus, boards, commissions, counsels, units, divisions, bodies, authorities, or institutions of the executive, legislative or judicial branches of state government. The term "state agencies" does include institutions within the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education or the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
