Vendors, Your Products/Services Could Help State & Local Governments Weather the Storm – 35 Emergency/Disaster Declarations in Sept 2011
There were thirty-nine major disaster, emergency or fire declarations by President Obama in August 2011 and thirty-five declarations in September 2011. Did you know that state and local Governments have additional options to reach vendors to assist with both disaster response and preparation? As a federal contractor are you participating in established purchasing programs that allow you to sell your products and/or services to state and local governments in need?
Interested? Well under the Disaster Recovery Program, state and local Governments may purchase products/services off of Federal Supply Services (FSS) contracts like GSA Schedules in order to facilitate the recovery from a major disaster. In addition, state and local Government entities may use FSS contracts to purchase products and services in advance of a major disaster declared by the president. State and local Governments are responsible for ensuring that the products/services purchased are to be used to facilitate recovery. Could your products or services have helped one or more state and local governments with recovery efforts after the 35 disasters in Sept 2011? Don’t miss an opportunity to sell for good! See additional information below and contact me if you’re interested in adding the option of Disaster Recovery to your GSA Schedule.
