The one-hour virtual trainings will be facilitated by GPD’s Procurement Disaster Assistance Team (PDAT) and will cover the federal rules that allow for noncompetitive (“sole source”) procurements along with important compliance considerations when exercising these flexibilities.

Preparedness Tips

Floods happen in South Dakota not only during spring runoff but can occur year-round.  Summer thunderstorms producing heavy rain can result in localized flooding that affect a smaller area.  A few inches of water in a 1,000-square foot home could cost more than $10,000 in repairs and replacement of personal possessions and homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover most floods.  Remember it does not take a lot of water to cause a lot of damage.  Learn more about protecting your home or business with flood insurance.
