Training Summary:

The goal of this training is to reduce applicant violations of the Federal procurement regulations by training participants on the Federal procurement requirements set forth at 2 C.F.R. §§ 200.317 through 200.326 (the "Uniform Rules").  Violations of the Federal procurement requirements can result in reduced Federal grant funding. This training will focus on the requirements set forth in the Uniform Rules so that participants can identify and avoid potential violations of the Federal procurement requirements.
 

Background:

The Procurement Disaster Assistance Team (PDAT) was established in 2014 to educate and inform recipients and subrecipients about the procurement requirements for grants that they may be eligible for under the Public Assistance grant program.  PDAT makes Procurement Under Grants (PUG) presentations across the country after disasters have been declared and has built successful partnerships with the communities that FEMA serves.  When PDAT is not presenting, it is positioned to answer grant-related procurement questions from FEMA Public Assistance and Regional Counsel colleagues in the regions and the field. 

You can find a Checklist for Procurements Associated with Disasters under the Uniform Rules, Required Contract Clauses Template, a webinar, and additional resources on the PDAT website.
