Hurricane Florence Disaster Response & Recovery
In the aftermath of Florence (and probably even before), local vendors and contractors will be looking for contracting opportunities in disaster response and recovery.
The NC Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) counselors can “educate” businesses in your county, city or region on vendor registration processes, where to find disaster recovery opportunities, review bids/proposals and provide guidance during the life of the contract.
There are many contracting opportunities that arise from disaster recovery operations. Emergency Responders need vendors that can clear debris, provide facility support services, furnish necessary supplies, and much more. In the aftermath of a disaster, different aspects of the recovery operations may be led by the federal government through FEMA, state government response programs, city or county emergency response programs, or non-profit organizations like the American Red Cross.

NC PTAC can help businesses be better prepared to bid on federal, state and local contracts.
