Procurement Under Grants 2.0 Webinar Module 5: Differences Between Current and Former Standards
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Procurement Disaster Assistance Team (PDAT) has put together a series of webinar modules on the rules for procurement under grants. There are eight (8) modules in this series. This webinar series covers the procurement standards under the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (also known as the “Uniform Rules”), which are codified at Title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations, sections 200.317 through 200.326 (2 C.F.R. §§ 200.317-.326). These blocks of instruction will familiarize you with the procurement standards imposed by Federal regulations on recipients and subrecipients when procuring services and property with funding from any of the Stafford Act grant programs, specifically as interpreted by and applied to the Public Assistance Program. We recommend watching these modules in order if you have not received this training before. If you have received any or all of this training before, these modules can be watched in any order as a refresher. If you’re viewing the webinar series sequentially, this block of instruction is the eighth and last in the series. This particular module, Module 5, summarizes the key differences between the current procurement standards and the previous procurement standards. For emergency and major disaster declarations issued on or after December 26, 2014, the procurement rules for all non-Federal Entities (NFEs) are located at 2 C.F.R. §§ 200.317-.326. For emergency and major disaster declarations issued before December 26, 2014, the rules for states, local governments, and tribes were located at 44 C.F.R. § 13.36, and the rules for nonprofits were located at 2 C.F.R. §§ 215.40-.48.
