WHAT’S NEW? FMFW used for the Application process, Revision Requests and Cash (Reimbursement) Requests Federal Objectives have been added to the Performance Reports Cash (Reimbursement) Requests are required to be submitted, at a minimum, on a quarterly basis (Except First Quarter, per GMM ) The Performance Report is cumulative M&A is now up to 5%
STATE FOCUS Information Management Technology and Process Emergency Responder Credentialing Program Alert & Warning Functional Needs Mass Evacuation Care and Sheltering Planning Exercises Regional Catastrophic Planning COOP & COG
FOUR OBJECTIVES 1. Approved Emergency Plans (CPG-101 v. 2) – not required at the OA or sub-recipient level 2. Completion of a Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment – not required at the OA or sub-recipient level 3. Develop and Maintain Multi-Year Training and Exercise Plans (TEPs) – required at State, OA and sub- recipient level 4. Target Training and Verify Capability of Personnel – required at State, OA and sub- recipient level
Multi-Year TEP A roadmap to accomplish your priorities Engaging the Whole Community in training and exercises allows all partners to evaluate and improve upon their level of preparedness. Requirement – develop TEP and update it annually Exception – if all EMPG funding is used for equipment Submitted to Cal EMA Exercise Division
TEPs (continued) All EMPG funded personnel shall participate* in no less than three (3) exercises, of any type, between 7/1/11 and 6/30/12. EMPG grant funded personnel are any personnel paid at any percentage with EMPG funds. This includes, M&A and contracted personnel. Exercises should align to your TEP and to an activity. * There is no specific requirement for the level of participation, observe and attend satisfies the requirement. After Action Reports must be completed by the exercise host and submitted to Cal EMA and FEMA (encrypted) within 90 days of the exercise. Multi-Year TEPs must also be submitted to Cal EMA Exercise Division by 9/30/11. Multi-Year TEPs must also be submitted on a one-time basis with a quarterly performance report
EXERCISES Exercises should evaluate the performance of the capabilities required to respond to the exercise scenario. Your exercise should align to your TEP and to an EMPG activity.
SEVEN TYPES OF EXERCISES Seminar Workshop Tabletop (TTX) Games Drill Functional (FE) Full-Scale(FSE)
ALLOWABLE EXERCISE COSTS Implementation of HSEEP Design, develop, conduct and evaluate an exercise Hiring of full- or part-time staff or contractors/ consultants Overtime and backfill Travel (airfare, mileage, per diem and hotel) Supplies Other items consumed in direct support of the exercise activities (rental space, signage, event badges, etc. – not food or drink)
TARGET TRAINING Training activities should strategically align to a target capability identified in the Multi-Year TEP. To ensure the development of a professional emergency management workforce, all EMPG grant funded personnel shall complete 11 training requirements and record proof of completion by 6/30/2012. (This is reported in the Quarterly Performance Reports.)
11 TRAINING REQUIREMENTS All are free and online through FEMA Must be reported on quarterly NIMS Training – IS 100, 200, 700 and 800 FEMA Professional Development Series – IS 139, 230.b, 235.a, 240.a, 241.a, 242.a and 244.a “G” course series equivalents satisfy the requirement. Past completion of the older versions of the courses also satisfies the requirement (i.e. if you took 230.a you do not need to take 230.b)
TRAINING EMPG funds may be used to enhance the capabilities of personnel through establishing, supporting, conducting and attending training Training should have a community oriented approach that engages at the community level, strengthens best practices and provides a path toward sustainable resilience

ORGANIZATION Per the Stafford Act, EMPG funds may be used for all- hazards emergency management operations, staffing and other day-to-day activities in support of emergency management. Personnel costs including salary, overtime, compensatory time off and associated fringe benefits are allowable costs with EMPG funds. Proposed personnel costs should be linked to achieving your objectives.
EQUIPMENT Must be allowable equipment for the EMPG grant on the AEL (categories 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 19 and 21). General purpose vehicles (SUVs) are allowed to carry about EMPG responsibilities. See page 19 of the EMPG State Guidance for specifics on communications equipment. NOTE: All equipment to be purchased must be specified on the application (or a modification done and approved) before it may be purchased.
CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SAFETY PROCUREMENT PROGRAM The 1122 Program allows government agencies to purchase equipment and supplies from the Defense Logistics Agency, the Department of the Army and the General Services Administration. This allows for discounts due to large volume purchases. The 1033 Program allows for the transfer of excess DOD property to local LE agencies (powers of arrest) at no cost other than shipping. The Homeland Defense Equipment Reuse (HDER) Program provides no cost refurbished equipment no longer needed by the federal government.
CONSTRUCTION AND RENOVATION Construction and renovation (C&R) activities for a local government’s principal EOC are allowable. Costs must be consistent with FY 11 EOC Grant Program. Up to $1 million for construction projects or up to $250,000 for renovation projects. (Remember, it’s a dollar-for-dollar match.) Construction – new facility or changes to the footprint of an existing facility. Must comply with the Davis-Bacon Act. Renovation – internal improvements to an existing facility.
NECESSARY C&R INFORMATION Prior to the draw down of funds for limited EOC construction and renovation, the following must be provided to Cal EMA: A description of the EOC facility, location, and scope of the project A certification that an assessment has been conducted to identify EOC needs (facility, communications capability, computer systems, network capabilities, survivability and sustainability) Written approval must be obtained from Cal EMA prior to the use of any EMPG funds for C&R A description of how the construction or renovation project will address the needs identified from the assessment Consequences of not implementing the construction or renovation project A NEPA Compliance Checklist (And don’t forget your EHP)
MAINTENANCE AND SUSTAINMENT EMPG may be used for maintenance contracts, warranties, repair and replacement costs, upgrades and user fees for equipment purchased with EMPG funds. Routine upkeep may not be funded by EMPG. Contracts may not go beyond the grant period, i.e., 7/1/2011-6/30/2012. Items must be on the BSIR.
UNALLOWABLE COSTS Weapons systems and ammunition General-use software, general-use computers and related equipment (some exceptions apply), general- use vehicles and licensing fees Personnel costs to support the hiring of public officers for public safety duties, positions and responsibilities Activities unrelated to EMPG Items not on the EMPG categories in the AEL Indirect/overhead costs
EXCLUDED PARTIES LIST SYSTEM The Excluded Parties List System (EPLS) includes information on entities who have been debarred, suspended proposed for debarment, excluded or disqualified to receive federal funding. Check the list before employing a contractor or consultant: https://www.epls.gov
SUPPLANTING Grant funds are used to supplement existing funds, not supplant (replace) funds that have been appropriated or budgeted for the same purpose through non-federal grant sources. If something is paid for now without grant funds and you wish to use grant funds, that is supplanting, unless… If you are able to document a reduction in non-federal resources that occurred for reasons other than the receipt or expected receipt of federal funds, that is not supplanting.
