Alternate Site Plans
In the event that the primary site for the BCP Response Team is unavailable, describe where the team will meet to review and plan their activities. Give the address and telephone number(s) of the location and detailed instructions on how to get there if possible, cut and paste a map of the area into this document. If no alternate site has been previously established, indicate that the BCP Coordinator will communicate this information at the time of a declared emergency
The Charlotte Cisco office and local SAP office who is a prime vendor and partner in product development has been designated as the alternate worksite. We have put into place an agreement with both the offices and personnel work space for up to 30 days. But here we have 12 buildings in different locations so mostly we can work from our local area if any disaster that caused human made.
Monthly Budget for Alternate site.
Some of the core technical team need to travel or stay in Charlotte and this is also cisco main branch so we dont need to pay any charges for it. Only we have to take care about the accommodation and travel expenses. Which costs nearly USD 20k to 30k for 30 days.
And other developers and non-technical team can work from local SAP office or they can work from home, for this purpose we signed with SAP for 13% discount on the product we are developing for them.
