BOLDplanning and Guidehouse have partnered up to implement a Continuity of Operations (COOP) planning platform for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT). Guidehouse is a leading global provider of consulting services to the public and commercial markets with broad capabilities in management, technology, and risk consulting.

Most recently, BOLDplanning’s Manager of Training and Customer Solutions, Will Minkoff, CBCP, traveled to Boston to meet with Guidehouse and MassDOT’s security and management teams. Conversations centered around the department’s emergency planning needs and its organizational structure, both of which are crucial to platform customization. Minkoff, who has extensive experience working with state agencies, also offered up some very welcomed strategies for COOP plan development and maintenance. 

“It’s always interesting and rewarding to work with state DOTs,” said Minkoff. “They play such an important role in the lives of the people they serve every day.” 

Minkoff will continue to support MassDOT’s COOP planning initiative as it matures in the months ahead.
