We’re pleased to announce the launch of a new website focused specifically on current and upcoming FEMA contract opportunities!
An increased number of natural disasters across the nation over the past six years has resulted in great opportunities for vendors to help impacted communities while adding new revenue streams to their businesses. FEMA contract awards have already exceeded $1.1 billion during FY2011 following damage from the Joplin tornadoes, DC earthquake and Hurricane Irene. Further funding is currently being negotiated in Congress, which would allow FEMA to award even more contracts before the end of the fiscal year.
In order for businesses to qualify for FEMA contracts, they must meet all the standard requirements for federal contracts as well as complete a few extra steps. Completion of the Disaster Relief section of their CCR registration and the creation of a FEMA Vendor Profile should be completed before a firm attempts to bid on a contract since failure to complete these steps may delay or even disqualify them from a contract award.
US Federal Contractor Registration’s new FEMA Contracts site contains a wealth of information about FEMA, the types of contracts currently available and how your business can qualify for them.
Since recovery and rebuilding efforts must begin promptly after an emergency, it’s important that your business is prepared for FEMA contracts before disaster strikes. Registration completed beforehand allows you to focus all your energies on the bidding process, rather than risk losing the bid because you’re trying to complete registration at the same time.
Interested site visitors can request an informational free FEMA packet to help them on their way to FEMA contract awards.
