Federal Grant Procurement Requirements – Disaster

Below is a list of some helpful resources from FEMA’s Procurement Disaster Assistance Team (PDAT) that you might pass along to state and local staff involved in procurement.


1.  The attached 4-page bulletin provides an overview of federal grant procurement standards.


2.  Procurement staff can use the attached checklist to assess whether a procurement meets federal standards.


3.  The attached “PDAT Manual Supplement” provides detailed information on the standards.


4.  I’ve attached the governing regulations (2 CFR 200.317-326, including the required contract clauses in Appx. II). Note that the old regulations (44 CFR part 13 and 2 CFR part 215) do not apply to disasters declared starting in 2015, including Hurricane Matthew. 

5. A 40-minute video presentation is available online at https://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/videos/110054
