Funds for this work are provided by the Island County local funds.
Background: Overview Island County is requesting proposals for professional services to assist us in the development of the County’s Continuity of Operations Plan (“COOP”). COOP is defined as an internal effort within individual components of a government or corporation to ensure that the capability exists to continue essential component functions across a wide range of potential emergencies, including, but not necessarily limited to, localized acts of nature, accidents, and technological or attack-related emergencies. The COOP provides the requirements, strategies, and proposed actions necessary to fully recover Island County’s mission essential operations rapidly and effectively following a COOP event.
Project Overview: The project is comprised of planning, research, outreach, and conceptual design elements. It is expected that the consultant selected for this contract will begin by becoming familiar with the existing efforts in place to begin the process of COOP development. The consultant will work with County staff to identify necessary information, refining the information as appropriate, and begin development of the COOP document through a facilitated process. Upon developing these concepts, the consultant will conduct additional outreach necessary, which will then be documented and prioritized in a plan document. Once the COOP document has been completed, the consultant is expected to develop a small Table Top Exercise to test the completed COOP document.
