Year 2000 Computing Crisis:
Business Continuity and Contingency Planning (Exposure Draft) (Superseded by AIMD-10.1.19)
AIMD-10.1.19, Mar 1, 1998
This publication has been superseded by AIMD-10.1.19, Year 2000 Computing Crisis: Business Continuity and Contingency Planning, August 1998. GAO published a guide to provide a conceptual framework for helping large agencies to manage the risk of potential year 2000-induced disruptions to their operations. This guide provides information on the scope and challenge and offers a structured approach for reviewing the adequacy of agency year 2000 business continuity and contingency planning efforts, focusing on four phases supported by program and project management activities: (1) initiation; (2) business impact analysis; (3) contingency planning; and (4) testing.
