Continuity Planning

The purpose of continuity planning is to increase the university’s ability to continue operating in the face of adverse events, while focusing on our mission of teaching, research, and patient care.

Continuity plans created using Tufts Continuity Planner will help departments to:

  • Prepare for events with the potential to disrupt their department’s operations.
  • Carry on their critical functions under conditions of diminished resources: loss of space, loss of equipment, loss of IT infrastructure, and high absenteeism.
  • Rapidly resume these functions if they’ve been interrupted by an unplanned event.

Tufts Continuity Planner is intuitive, easy-to-use and requires no training. Tailored for institutions of higher education, this tool produces department-level continuity plans and can be used by any type of department. It typically takes just 1-2 months of minimal, part-time effort to complete a continuity plan, because the tool stimulates thoughtful consideration of issues instead of requiring detailed research or leg-work.
