UCI Receives “Spotlight on Collaboration” Award at 2017 Risk Summit

In June of 2015, the Campus Continuity Subcommittee was convened to carry out an 18-month campus wide initiative of conducting the university’s first Business Impact Analysis (BIA) and developing the framework for the enterprise continuity & recovery plan. The subcommittee was made up of quasi-level executive membership representing the following departments: Police/Emergency Management, Campus Counsel, Risk Services, Human Resources, Administrative & Business Services Office, Office of Information Technology (OIT)/Disaster Recovery, School Information Technology, Office of Research, Academic Affairs & Student Affairs.

The Campus Continuity Subcommittee met on a quarterly basis for 18 months (June 2015 – November 2016) to review and prioritize the risk values associated with 527 essential functions performed by 84 departments across campus in order to identify which of these would have the greatest impact on the campus mission should they cease for any period of time. The methodology behind the risk value-rating process targeted five separate areas of impact including research, teaching, operations, finance and compliance.  The subcommittee served as a quality control panel for this process; viewing it through their own respective area of expertise, in order to ensure that the data collected, processed and interpreted throughout the course of 104 department-level interviews was considering “risk” through a variety of different lenses.

A BIG thanks and congratulations to the UCI Campus Continuity Subcommittee!
