GSA reminds contractors about this important contracting platform
The US General Services Adminstration (GSA) reminds all contractors that when national emergencies or disasters such as floods and hurricanes occur, supplies and services need to be procured and rushed to the affected areas quickly. To expedite this process, the System for Award Management (SAM) contains a Disaster Response Registry in accordance with FAR subparts 4.11 and 26.2.
Disaster Response Registry is a voluntary registry of contractors who are willing to perform debris removal, distribution of supplies, reconstruction, and other disaster or emergency relief activities established in accordance with 6 U.S.C. 796, Registry of Disaster Response Contractors. The Registry contains information on contractors who are willing to perform disaster or emergency relief activities within the United States and its outlying areas.
For more information about the Disaster Response Registry please visit https://www.acquisition.gov/disaster-response-registry.
