ABSTRACT

Globally, various disasters such as typhoons, floods, earthquakes, fires, explosions have caused work to be halted. If there is a large-scale disaster at public institutions in charge of major national affairs and their works are interrupted, not only will there be property damage, but there will also lead to a decline in national credibility and direct and indirect impacts on the people. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure continuity of operation by minimizing the interruption period of critical operations due to disasters. Overseas advanced countries such as the United States and Japan developed guidelines for Continuity of Operation (COOP) to prevent unexpected work disruptions caused by disasters. Recognizing the necessity of COOP in South Korea, a relevant law has been newly established in 「the Framework Act on the Management of Disasters and Safety」 to enable public institutions to establish the COOP in response to this situation. In this study, the definition, the necessity and overseas cases of COOP were investigated and described. Using the templates developed by these results, operational impact analysis, risk assessment, operational continuity strategies and operational continuity procedures were applied to “A” City Hall in Gyeonggi-do province and those results were described. The objective of this study is to substantially contribute to the introduction of COOP to local governments through their pilot application and implications of COOP.
