Procurement Trainings for DR-4229 Applicants

The FEMA Procurement Disaster Assistance Team (PDAT) will be conducting procurement trainings next week for FEMA Public Assistance DR-4229 applicants. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) reports that a failure to follow federalprocurement regulations is one of the key issues identified in audit findings. This finding may result in a Public Assistance applicant (a FEMA PA Program sub-grantee) being asked to return Federal assistance.

One representative from each applicant participating in the FEMA Public Assistance program is required to attend this procurement training

Please be aware that missing this important training can put an applicant at higher risk of an OIG finding by being uninformed of common issues that arise during DHS OIG procurement auditing

The training sessions will be held in person at the following times and locations:

  • Tuesday, September 1, 2015 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Emergency Services Center, 101 W. 10th St., Pueblo, CO 81003
  • Wednesday, September 2, 2015 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Morgan CO Dept. of Human Services, 800 E. Beaver Ave., Fort Morgan, CO 80701
