Appendix P: Office of the Secretary Pandemic Influenza Information

Certain Offices located within Policy, Management, and Budget, as well as within the Immediate Office of the Secretary, are not required to maintain their own individual Pandemic Influenza Plans, but instead supplement this plan with additional information specific to the operations of their own specific Office. This additional information is to be submitted to the Office of Law Enforcement, Security, and Emergency Management within 90 days of publication of this plan and will subsequently be published as a supplement to this appendix.

The information required from these Offices includes the following, but is not limited to:

  • A prioritized list of office functions to be executed during a pandemic
  • A list of the associated employees responsible for performing each office function
  • An inventory of vital records and databases needed to sustain operations for longer than 30 days, if necessary, including whether these records can be accessed electronically from a remote location (e.g., an employee's home)
  • A summary of office functions that cannot be performed remotely
  • For functions that may be performed from remote locations, a record of employees performing these functions with at least three levels of backup either locally or from other regions of the country
  • For functions that may be performed from remote locations, an inventory of required equipment (e.g., laptops, PDAs, remote access, high speed internet)
  • Where sufficient backups may not exist, a directory of employees capable of being cross-trained to perform a variety of office functions
  • An inventory of contracts and contractors that perform essential and support functions.
