Bus/Financial - Finance (general)
Spanish term or phrase: encuadramiento
This term is used as a heading in a Business Continuity Plan to describe the position of the business continuity unit within the company (i.e., the department within which the unit is situated). Is there a concise equivalent term for this concept in English, without resorting to a circumlocution like "location within the corporate structure"?

Gracias de antemano.
