Mapping Activity Statement (MAS) and Statement of Work (SOW) Templates for the Cooperating Technical Partner (CTP) Program
FEMA and its CTPs administer activities of the CTP Program through close and frequent coordination. There are three formal agreements involved: the Partnership Agreement, a Mapping Activity Statement (MAS) or Statement of Work (SOW), and a Cooperative Agreement. The Partnership Agreement is a prerequisite to any further activities under the CTP Program. CTP Program projects are collaborative efforts where both the CTP and FEMA contribute data, units of work and/or funding to maximize the extent, accuracy, and utility of flood risk project to best meet programmatic needs, while minimizing costs for all parties. The MAS or SOW supplements the Partnership Agreement and is a key component of a Cooperative Agreement award package. The MAS or SOW identifies the activities that will be accomplished for a particular project or funding year, defines the roles and responsibilities of all parties involved, and documents the funding and data contributions of both FEMA and the Partner(s). The MAS and SOW templates are typically revised each fiscal year to align with updated Program priorities, standards, and processes.
