Hurricane Harvey Disaster Contracting – Critical Things to Know!
The devastation being wrought by recent hurricanes is creating a tremendous need for emergency rescue, relief, and recovery services, likely resulting in contracting opportunities with state and local government agencies, as well as FEMA. But the storm will also likely be used as an excuse to circulate false information by companies peddling “priority vendor status” – for a hefty fee, of course – promising the “opportunity to help your community for disaster relief efforts and make profits at the same time.” BEWARE of these types of “Opportunities” — FEMA does NOT have a “priority vendor” program. For more information and link to the full article see our Blog on the “Learn More” Tab!
FEMA does not have a priority vendor list, but they do have a voluntary registry list. This voluntary registry is merely used as supplemental market research for the agency. Companies may register in FEMA’s voluntary vendor by downloading forms at “https://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/29748” and submit the completed form to “firstname.lastname@example.org”
