When utilizing FEMA program funds in the category of Interoperable Communications Equipment to build, upgrade, enhance, or replace communications systems, grantees and sub-grantees should develop a comprehensive interoperable communications plan before procurement decisions are made.

Grantees are reminded that supplanting of previously planned or budgeted activities is strictly prohibited. Grantees should coordinate with their assigned FEMA preparedness officer to determine the appropriate allowable cost category for these purchases.
