Continuity of Operations (COOP) in the Executive Branch: Issues in the 109th Congress

Date: January 31, 2005

COOP planning is a segment of federal government contingency planning linked to continuity of government (COG). Together, COOP and COG are designed to ensure survival of a constitutional form of government and the continuity of essential federal functions. This report focuses primarily on executive branch COOP activities.
