Depending upon the current status of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) planning within an organisation, clients may select from the following range of BCAS™ independent consulting services:

Planning Health Check - initial quick review to establish the current BC/DR capability within an organisation. Deliverables include outline observations, gap analysis, recommended follow-up / action plan.

Plan Creation / Enhancement - extension of the BC/DR Planning Process to facilitate plan production or enhancement. The later allows for the adapting of the dynamic report elements (see the Continue…™ system) to a client’s existing static format.

BC/DR Planning Process - in depth review to identify and quantify the business requirement, priorities, and issues to be addressed by a BC/DR plan. Deliverables include initial set of executive reports, Business Resiliency Profile for each Department / Business Unit, and both individual and consolidated Facility Resource Overviews plus optional Master Plan Outline, BC/DR Templates and Checklists, and a Major Milestones Activity List for implementation. 

Disaster Recovery Supplier Selection - the independent nature of BCAS™ enables unbiased advice and guidance to be given on disaster recovery service supplier selection. Consulting can be undertaken on a fee basis or in combination with a performance element calculated as a percentage of savings realised. 

BC/DR Strategy - optional executive level recommendations and action plan covering Risk Assessment Profile, recommended Strategy and related Options for Board approval. Establishes the resource and budget parameters for establishing an effective BC/DR capability. This is in addition to the Planning Process above.

Deliverables may be extended from the BC/DR Planning Process to include the production of Invitations to Tender (ITT) or Requests for Proposal (RFP) material, Comparative Matrix, short list recommendations, and points for negotiation. 

The above is complimentary to the ABC Planning™ approach. It is intended as an indicative guide only as independent BCAS™ consulting assignments are tailored to the client’s specific requirements.
