1. Purpose and Objective
Defense Logistics Information Services developed this disaster recovery plan (DRP) to be used in the event of a significant disruption. The goal of this plan is to ensure safety of personnel and business continuity as well as outline the key recovery steps to be performed during and after a disruption to return to normal operations as soon as possible.
The scope of this DRP document addresses technical recovery only in the event of a significant disruption. The intent of the DRP is to be used in conjunction with the business continuity plan (BCP) Defense Logistics Information Services has. A DRP is a subset of the overall recovery process contained in the BCP. Plans for the recovery of people, infrastructure, and internal and external dependencies not directly relevant to the technical recovery outlined herein are included in the Business Continuity Plan and/or the Corporate Incident Response and Incident Management plans Defense Logistics Information Services has in place. This disaster recovery plan provides:
Guidelines for determining plan activation;
Technical response flow and recovery strategy;
Guidelines for recovery procedures;
References to key Business Resumption Plans and technical dependencies;
Rollback procedures that will be implemented to return to standard operating state.
Checklists outlining considerations for escalation, incident management, and plan activation.

The specific objectives of this disaster recovery plan are to:
Ensure the safety of personnel onsite;
Immediately mobilize a core group of leaders to assess the technical ramifications of a situation;
Set technical priorities for the recovery team during the recovery period;
Minimize the impact of the disruption to the impacted features and business groups;
Stage the restoration of operations to full processing capabilities;
Enable rollback operations once the disruption has been resolved if determined appropriate by the recovery team.
Within the recovery procedures there are significant dependencies between and supporting technical groups within and outside Defense Logistics Information Services. This plan is designed to identify the steps that are expected to take to coordinate with other groups / vendors to enable their own recovery. This plan is not intended to outline all the steps or recovery procedures that other departments need to take in the event of a disruption, or in the recovery from a disruption.
Plan Updating
It is necessary for the DRP updating process to be properly structured and controlled. Whenever changes are made to the plan they are to be fully tested and appropriate amendments should be made to the training materials. This will involve the use of formalized change control procedures under the control of the IT Director.

Plan Documentation Storage
Copies of this Plan, CD, and hard copies will be stored
