Podcast Ep 28: The Government Buys... a Disaster

Jul 6, 2020 1:04:27 PM / by Alex Siniari


With beginnings in 1979, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has become the go-to source for federal disaster relief. FEMA recognizes the importance of private-sector partnerships to restore communities after disasters and that is where federal contracts come into play. With a little guidance, businesses can provide assistance and win federal contracts.

Continuing from last week's adventure into the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS), The Government Buys... a Podcast takes a deep dive on some data analytics surrounding three major disasters from the past 40 years.

This analysis shines a light on how businesses have worked with all levels of government in the past to aid in disaster relief and how preparedness and partnership can help them in the future.

If you are registered in the System for Award Management (SAM), you can do business with FEMA. A SAM registration is the only requirement, which can be completed for free on the government site. If you're not, consider the advice from this podcast and then get started with USFCR.
