If your company is interested in pursuing contract work with FEMA and other government agencies that respond to natural disaster and other national emergencies, register now to attend Georgia Tech’s “Before the Storm” event to be held Jan. 8, 2018 in Atlanta. Registration closes at Noon on Thursday, Jan. 4th.
Organized by the Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center (GTPAC), “Before the Storm” focuses on the advance preparation vendors need to put in place in order to qualify for government emergency support contracts and subcontracts. By attending, vendors will learn how to become “procurement ready” well before agencies like FEMA need to purchase disaster recovery supplies and services.
This event will be relevant to any vendor of supplies and services in any of the federal government’s 15 Emergency Support Function (ESF) categories. 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 in Atlanta, GA. There will be a registration fee of $30 to attend, and both breakfast and lunch are included. Advance registration for the event is required, and no on-site registration will be allowed. No refunds.
