Documents to develop your Departments Mission Essential Functions and COOP Plan


  • Business Process analysis to determine Mission Essential Functions for your department
    • The Mission Essential Function(s) MEF(s) is simply the primary function(s) of the department.  Defining MEFs will allow us to break down each department by critical functions that will need to be maintained during emergencies. Please note that if you have a Departmental Plan of Operations this will help define your MEF(s).
