Contracting After Disasters

May 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

In a world where disasters, whether natural or man-made, can strike at any moment, every state must be prepared to handle crises efficiently. When a disaster strikes, contractors often scramble to secure FEMA contracts. However, the common misconception is that the process begins with FEMA, when in reality, by that point, it’s already too late.

During emergencies, contracting rules undergo significant changes, misinformation spreads like wildfire, and many small businesses–eager to tap into government spending–find themselves lost in the chaos. This webinar aims to shed light on the truth behind contracting during disasters.

Join us for an enlightening session where we delve into the intricacies of disaster contracting. We will explore key topics such as:
