US Federal Contractor Registration is encouraging businesses to register for FEMA contracts immediately. According to a news report on Bay News 9, FEMA is opening a Disaster Recovery Center in New Port Richey, FL following severe flooding caused by Tropical Storm Debby in June.

In order to qualify for any federal contracts, vendors must obtain a DUNS number and have completed their CCR registration and ORCA filing. To qualify for FEMA contracts, businesses must also complete a FEMA Vendor Profile. Vendors are also strongly encouraged to complete their Dynamic Small Business Search profile. Failure to complete all these steps prior to bidding may cause costly delays or even result in losing a contract award to another business.

While the biggest demands are for debris removal, construction services and emergency supplies, other industries are also needed to help FEMA fulfill its goals. Interested businesses should get registered as soon as possible so they don't miss out on FEMA contracting opportunities.
