6-12 Continuity of Operations of CP

The following items apply to continuity of operations:

  1. Code Escrow. To protect the Postal Service from a CP exiting the market place, declaring bankruptcy, or de-supporting a cloud solution and to support the ability of the Postal Service to set up this solution with another CP, the CP must put a copy of the current version and all subsequent versions of the source code required to re-create the system in escrow within the continental United States at the CPs expense.
  2. Cloud Environment. The CP must provide the ability to rapidly re-create the exact same operating environment if the CP is no longer able to provide access to the current instance of the system.
  3. The CP must provide attestation of the how the CP will comply with the requirements for continuity of operations.
