COOP Web App Coming Soon

The Center for Information Technology Services (CITS) is developing a web application for the University of Maryland Baltimore’s Continuity of Operations Plans (COOPs).  The application will provide an easier and more efficient way for Schools and administrative units to develop and update their respective COOPs. In addition, the application will provide a reporting mechanism and a means for campus leadership, emergency management personnel, and emergency response team personnel to access key emergency management information.

The main objectives of a COOP include:  

  • Achieving a timely and orderly recovery from an emergency
  • Ensuring continuous performance of essential functions during an emergency
  • Protecting essential facilities, equipment, records and other assets
  • Reducing or mitigating disruptions to operations
