This section includes equipment and systems that provide connectivity and electrical interoperability between local and interagency organizations to coordinate CBRNE response operations. 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. Grant funds may be used to cover only those services provided during the grant project period. 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.
