San Diego Unified Port District, San Diego, CA

Don Rawson Associates Client


Updated the Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) for the San Diego Unified Port District, which included:


  • The identification of critical essential functions focused on defining the activities necessary to accomplish the District’s mission, serve its stakeholders, and ensure the continuation of operational objectives and tasks.


  • The prioritization of department essential functions by time identifying the maximum tolerable duration between when a disruption occurs and when the function is resumed under emergency conditions.


  • The identification of personnel responsible for each essential function and one alternate to ensure each essential function is performed regardless of any one person’s availability.


  • The identification of essential records, databases, and hardcopy documents needed to support essential functions under the full spectrum of all-hazards emergencies.


  • The identification of which essential functions depend upon external organizations, agencies, or businesses to operate and maintain critical services.


  • The identification of a clear line of succession in the event the District’s leadership becomes debilitated or incapable of performing its legal and authorized duties, roles, and responsibilities.


  • The identification of communications systems to support full connectivity, under all conditions, among key leadership, internal elements, other organizations, critical customers, and the public.


  • The identification of alternate worksite locations as a means of accomplishing the District’s essential functions in the event the primary location is unavailable.
