Continuity Assessment Tool (FEMA) 

04-16-2021 04:34 PM

Tool to assist with assessing assessing continuity plans and programs against specific metrics. Examining areas for improvement and areas of strength, organizations can better prioritize and resource continuity needs and gaps.

"This Continuity Assessment Tool (CAT) can be used by non-federal organizations to assess a continuity plan and program against the requirements for a viable continuity program and plan as outlined in the Continuity Guidance Circular (CGC). The CAT can assist organizations and communities in identifying areas of strength, areas for improvement, best practices, and lessons learned. The CAT should be used on a regular basis (e.g., annually) as a method for determining whether gaps exist in an organization's continuity plan and program. Federal departments and agencies (and other organizations following federal guidance) should choose to use the Continuity Evaluation Tool (CET), which is designed to evaluate compliance with federal continuity directives."
