Conduct, Document & Evaluate

Conducting the actual test requires centralized coordination by the Business Continuity Plan (BCP) coordinator or team. The team or coordinator is responsible for overseeing the accomplishment of targeted objectives and for ensuring that test results are appropriately documented.

Generally, it is advisable to have the maximum number of personnel that will be involved in implementing the BCP also participate in the test. This participation increases awareness, buy-in, and ownership in achieving successful BCP implementation. It is also advisable to rotate personnel involved in testing in order to prepare for the loss of key individuals, both during a disaster and as a result of retirements, promotions, terminations, resignations, or re-assignment of responsibilities. The involvement and oversight of independent staff such as auditors will help to ensure the validity of the testing process and the accuracy of the reporting.
