FEMA Agency Spending: An Overview

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), a part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is responsible for coordinating the federal government's response to natural and man-made disasters. Its mission is to support citizens and first responders in ensuring that the nation works together to build, sustain, and improve capabilities to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.

Contract awards are a significant part of FEMA's operations, as they enable the agency to procure necessary goods and services quickly in response to emergencies. Today, we're going to dive into some interesting insights about FEMA's contract awards.

FEMA's Website and Resources:

FEMA's official website (https://www.fema.gov) offers extensive information related to disaster response, recovery, and preparedness. In addition to general resources, there are specific programs and forecasts that businesses may find of particular interest:

Contract Awards in Fiscal Year 2017:

In FY 2017, FEMA awarded contracts worth $3.1 billion. The contracts were split between small businesses ($854,621,882) and other than small businesses ($2,282,786,100). In addition to these figures, $99.9 million were awarded through GSA/VA Schedule Contracts, with the Professional Services Schedule and the GSA Total Solutions for Security Schedule 84 being the top schedules.

Top NAICS Codes for Contract Awards:

Significant awards in FY 2017 were made under a variety of NAICS codes, which encompassed industries such as manufacturing, engineering services, building inspection services, facilities support services and more.

Place of Performance:

The place of performance for contracts can vary greatly, often matching with locations most affected by disasters and in immediate need of response and recovery operations.

Socio-Economic Status of Contractors:

FEMA also classifies contract awards based on the socio-economic status of the businesses, which includes categories such as small businesses, 8(a) businesses, veteran-owned businesses, women-owned businesses, and others.

In conclusion, for businesses aiming to collaborate with FEMA via contract awards, understanding FEMA's mission, the upcoming procurement forecasts, and the process of becoming a vendor or contractor is essential.
