Purpose

This regulation establishes responsibilities, policies, and planning guidance to ensure the effective execution of critical Army missions and the continuation of mission essential functions (MEFs) under all circumstances. All Department of the Army (DA) continuity-related activities will be coordinated and managed under the Army Continuity of Operations (COOP) Program. This regulation is the proponent policy document for the U.S. Army COOP program. If there is any conflict in this guidance with any other Army regulation, pamphlet, or other Army document, this regulation takes precedence. A COOP plan is complementary to other continuity programs and is a part of the foundation for Army COOP.

Applicability.

This regulation applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States, the U.S. Army Reserve, unless otherwise stated. It also applies to Army Commands, Army Service Component Commands, Direct Reporting Units, field operating agencies, and Army-owned and Army-managed installations and garrisons, facilities, and civil works projects, unless otherwise stated. In the event of conflict between this regulation and approved Office, Secretary of Defense or Joint Chiefs of Staff publications, the provisions of the latter will apply.
