If your company is interested in pursuing contract work with FEMA and other government agencies that respond to natural disaster and other national emergencies, mark your calendar now — Jan. 8, 2018 — and plan to attend “Before the Storm.”
Organized by the Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center (GTPAC), the “Before the Storm” event will focus on the advance preparation vendors need to put in place in order to qualify for government emergency support contracts and subcontracts.
Any vendor of supplies and services falling into any of the federal government’s 15 Emergency Support Function (ESF) categories should plan to attend. See ESF details at: https://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/25512.
The day-long event will be held at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center. There will be a registration fee of $30 to attend, and both breakfast and lunch are included.
The registration process will open in the next few days, so watch for an announcement.
