What is a Business Continuity Plan?

What is a business continuity plan?

A business continuity plan (BCP) is a document that outlines how a business will continue operating during an unplanned disruption in service. It’s more comprehensive than a disaster recovery plan and contains contingencies for business processes, assets, human resources and business partners – every aspect of the business that might be affected.

Plans typically contain a checklist that includes supplies and equipment, data backups and backup site locations. Plans can also identify plan administrators and include contact information for emergency responders, key personnel and backup site providers. Plans may provide detailed strategies on how business operations can be maintained for both short-term and long-term outages.

Harvard to Pay Back Coronavirus Stimulus Money, Trump Says

Harvard University plans to repay the federal government money it received as part of a stimulus package to help small businesses struggling with coronavirus lockdowns, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday, after the funding for the university drew fire.

Speaking at a daily briefing at the White House, Trump also said 20 states were moving ahead quickly to reopen following the lockdown. 

On the subject of the loans, Harvard reportedly nettled nearly $9 million in aid through the Paycheck Protection Program.

“Harvard’s going to pay back the money, they shouldn’t be taking it,” Trump said. “They have one of the largest endowments anywhere in the country, maybe the world I guess, and they’re going to pay back that money.”

He added that some large companies, unnamed in his briefing, would also pay back funds obtained through the pandemic loan program. Harvard has an endowment worth more than $40 billion,

KURTZLEBEN: Markowitz works at a Florida accounting firm and spoke to NPR via Skype. He rattled off a list of how what payroll means has changed since the program was created.

MARKOWITZ: There was a
