Proper procurement of services and commodities is critical to obtaining maximum reimbursement from FEMA. Local entities must follow their own rules, State requirements and FEMA regulations, so the process can be convoluted and complex. DLC is intimately familiar with every aspect of the State and Federal procurement requirements, especially the revised rules issued by FEMA in the “Super Circular.” We are also able to look at them through a critical legal lens to ensure that clients are doing everything possible to minimize costs and maximize recovery funds.
DLC can assist in revising and creating procurement policies and/or ensuring that an entity’s procurement procedures comply with State and Federal requirements. FEMA has become extremely particular about proper procurement, so it is best to ensure that proper procurement processes are in place far in advance of when a storm strikes.
