The DRJ Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) Generally Accepted Business Continuity Practices Committee maintains the Generally Accepted Practices (GAP) document, a collection of business continuity best practices which was designed and organized to correlate with the DRII Professional Practices and the BCI Good Practice Guidelines.
The GAP document was originally completed, in 2008, by 10 individual sub-committees of seasoned business continuity professionals from the DRJ Editorial Advisory Board and partner organizations (ARMA, DRII, FSTC and NFPA), including members from both the public and private sectors.
The mission of the DRJ-EAB GAP effort is: “To be recognized as a leading source of ‘sound’ Generally Accepted Practices by providing a depository of knowledge and recommendations offered by skilled business continuity practitioners.”
