Event Details

When a disaster strikes, communities must often act quickly to protect life, public health or safety, and property. In such instances, going through a competitive procurement may be impractical and even worsen the potential threat. Recognizing that communities impacted by Hurricane Ian may face exigency or emergency (EE) circumstances when carrying out a FEMA award, FEMA’s Grant Programs Directorate (GPD) is offering trainings on the federal rules that allow for expedited procurement actions during circumstances that require immediate aid or action.

Exigency or Emergency (E&E) Training – Educates recipients and subrecipients on the federal procurement rules applicable when purchasing during exigency or emergency circumstances.

Topics Include

  • Exigency or Emergency Circumstances
  • Considerations for State and Non-State Entities
  • Time and Material Contract Types
  • Prohibition on Cost Plus Percentage of Cost Contracts
  • Cost or Price Analysis
  • Contract Provisions
  • Additional Requirements Under EE Circumstances
  • Tools and Resources

Target Audience

This training is appropriate for FEMA award recipients and subrecipients, including state, local, tribal, and territorial government personnel; nonprofit organization staff; eligible private entities; and other non-Federal entities. This training is also appropriate for FEMA staff.
