University policy requires all schools and departments to develop business continuity plans (BCP) and to annually test and update their plans.

The purpose of these BCPs is to support USC’s central mission of teaching, research, patient care and public service by preparing all units to resume critical operations rapidly following a disaster.

Potential disaster situations include fire, earthquake, civil disturbance, technology outage, pandemic or any other incident that disrupts campus operations.

For assistance in developing your unit’s BCP, email Narine Amroyan –amroyan@usc.edu
