41 EMERGENCY CONTRACTSDuring Emergency situations, getting contracts in place to assist in the recovery is time critical.Normal contracting procedures will not work.The Corps utilizes existing POCA contracts at the local level, and Headquarters utilizes the Advance Contracts Initiatives (Multi-year contracts).Stafford Act includes a “local preference” provision which requires preference must be given when feasible and practical to local firms. ( Ex. During the 2011 Alabama Housing Mission the contract requirements included the use of In-State 8A Contractors )
42 EMERGENCY CONTRACTSFor additional information on being added to the list of Contractors who are available for emergency work, and for specific information on contracting requirements, please contact: Mary Spencer, Small Business Specialist US Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District (213)
