No Mega Contracts for Disaster Aid
FEMA issued a major Request for Information (RFI) in November 2017 for all shipping, transportation, logistics, and delivery for disaster aid in response to Hurricane Maria. FEMA intends to entrust a single vendor all responsibility to manage the distribution life sustaining resources for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
Responses from business and nonprofit leaders like you cannot be ignored. Our team has built a simple web form that makes it simple to send a direct message to FEMA through the RFI process.
What We Can Do Together
The public response period for the FEMA transportation RFI closed on 11/29. However, we are continuing to collect and share your comments with FEMA and advocates for #RebuildPR.
Here's what we can do together to ensure that FEMA is responsive to the public:
Tell us why you care about how FEMA contracts for disaster aid here.
Follow updates on the FEMA contract on social media at #RebuildPR.
Reach out to businesses in Puerto Rico and USVI and let them know that they can bid on Federal contracts for disaster aid. Opportunities are posted daily at FedBizOps.
We expect FEMA to issue a revised transportation RFP (request for proposals) in the coming weeks. Here's what we will be doing until then:
Sharing your comments with Congress, FEMA, and other Federal agencies
Promoting news about other Federal disaster contract opportunities via social media at #RebuildPR.
Preparing businesses, nonprofits, and advocates to respond to the RFP when it is released
