Court agency uses Super Bowl week to test disaster plan

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court Division of State Court Administration is taking advantage of the influx of visitors to central Indiana this week to determine if the agency can function from a remote location in case of a disaster.

The agency is requiring its three-person fiscal staff to telecommute Feb. 2 and 3 to see if the agency can keep up with payroll, claims, answering phone inquires and other tasks if employees are working outside of the office, said chief deputy executor David Remondini. Payroll and fiscal operations are considered one of the division’s top essential functions under its current Continuity of Operations plan. The agency has had its eye on the Super Bowl for about a year as the best way to test its plan, Remondini said.

As of Friday morning, he said the plan was working out fairly well, with just a couple of minor glitches with phone forwarding and email access.

“Learning about these hiccups now in a test mode should really help us in a real emergency,” he said.
