GSA sends reminder that program includes
state and local Governments
With Hurricane season coming up, GSA schedule holders received an email reminder on August 15th from [email protected] detailing the Disaster Recovery Purchasing program includes State and Local Government. GSA’s Disaster Recovery Purchasing Program allows State and Local Governments to use GSA Schedules for “disaster preparation and response, in addition to facilitation of recovery from major disasters.”
If you do receive an order form a State or Local Government through the Disaster Recovery Purchasing program, you must ensure the following statement is included in the order:
“This order is placed under GSA Schedule number __________________ under the authority of the GSA Disaster Purchasing program. The products and services purchased will be used in preparation or response to disasters or recovery from major disaster declared by the President, or recovery from terrorism or nuclear, biological, chemical, or radiological attack.”
Are you already part of the program?
If you have already agreed to participate in GSA’s Disaster Recovery Purchasing Program then there are no additional actions needed and this expansion will automatically become a part of your GSA Schedule contract. If you have not yet agreed to participate in the Disaster Recovery Purchasing Program and would like to do so now, you will need to submit a modification through the eMod system to accept the Programs terms and conditions. Once the modification is approved by your Contracting Officer, the Disaster Recovery Purchasing Program, including Federal, State and Local Governments, will become a part of your contract.
Not Sure if you have already agreed to participate?
If you are not sure if you have already decided to participate in the Disaster Recovery Purchasing Program, the easiest way to find out is to search your company on eLibrary. If you have chosen to participate you will see the Disaster Recovery logo on your company’s information screen.
Important Reminder: in your accounting system you should track any order placed through the Disaster Recovery Purchasing program separately. During your 72A quarterly reporting, you will report sales through the Disaster Recovery Purchasing program separately under the “RC” SINs.
