In preparation for this year’s hurricane season, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region IV Mission Support Division-Contracting, wants to educate suppliers interested in doing business with FEMA.
Shelter is a high priority following a natural disaster, so FEMA wants to ensure that manufacturers of mobile homes, retailers, commercial parks owners, installers, transporters, and all forms of service and supply providers are ready to respond immediately to FEMA’s requests for proposals to provide temporary housing and ancillary services.
FEMA’s goal is to seek local vendors, whenever practical and feasible, within each disaster area for recovery-related purchasing.
In order to do business with FEMA, vendors must be registered with the federal government. The purpose of the FEMA Teleconference is to discuss disaster business opportunities available through FEMA and educate vendors about the process of registering with the federal government. Registering one’s business with the federal government is a prerequisite for doing business with FEMA. Registering prior to a natural disaster expedites a vendor’s ability to do business with FEMA.
The FEMA Teleconference will be held Monday, July 17, 2017, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., Eastern Time.
There is no cost to attend this event via Teleconference but pre-registration is required. Limited space is available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you desire to join the teleconference.
Teleconference number: 800-320-4330; Passcode: 795068
