Contingency Planning

The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) has developed these Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) templates and guidance to help election and other government officials compile information to maintain their office’s ability to continue their operations, no matter what may happen, even during a crisis. Establishing these plans, documenting them, and practicing them ahead of time helps government agencies to withstand an incident/disaster, and understand the processes that must be followed to recover from such an incident/disaster.
