Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP)

An important aspect of emergency management is the ability to continue government operations when impacted by an emergency or disaster. To help agencies develop continuity of operations plans, Oregon has a contract to provide (at no cost to eligible organizations) a consistent Web-based platform for continuity of operations planning (COOP).

Veoci - Oregon's Continuity of Operations Planning Solution

The Oregon Department of Emergency Management (in partnership with the Oregon Department of Administrative Services) contracted with Veoci (Vee-oh-see). The Veoci solution supports the full life cycle of emergency management, from planning and preparedness to actual response and recovery and will provide the necessary tools and resources for all eligible State and Non-State agencies to develop fully compliant continuity plans and processes, increasing the readiness and resiliency for Oregonians and the whole community.

Login to the state Veoci platform

*Employees of state agencies with single sign-on (SSO) credentials will log in using their state credentials. All other users will register for an account with Veoci. All state and non-state users must be granted access to plans by their respective side room, room or group administrator.

​​Bold p​lanning was a previous vendor providing COOP services to agencies in Oregon. While the current platform is Veoci there are still some agencies in Oregon using Bold planning for COOP.​​

Veoci currently has two roles, Administrator and Member, however an enhancement has been approved to add a third role, Observer, which will allow users to access the Veoci environment for collaboration and provide access to the valuable templates and training within the platform.​

Placeholders such as [NAMEABB] and [AGENCY_DIRECTOR] must be entered manually, however we recognize the value and have submitted this as a potential enhancement request to be evaluated by the Veoci team.​
