Does your procurement department have a plan beyond responding to sourcing needs in the wake of a catastrophic event? Join Disaster Recovery Services as we discuss the procurement professional’s role in developing a disaster recovery strategy that looks beyond emergency response to positioning your organization for building community resilience with the use of federal funding.
In the current era of generous federal funding, many public entities find themselves in the role of ‘recipient’ and therefore set the procurement compliance standards for eligible ‘subrecipients’ who are often not familiar with or accustomed to public procurement rules and regulations. Add period of performance requirements, such as with ARPA funding, and a whole new layer of procurement challenges have to be managed.
Sedgwick County, Kansas, faced this exact scenario. Through the collaborative efforts and expertise of the County, the Arena’s third-party management company, federal disaster grant consultants, and suppliers, an innovative yet compliant plan was initiated utilizing ARPA funding to bring about much-needed renovations to the county arena to better serve and promote a healthy community.
Join us as we use this case study to discuss the need for innovative procurement strategies to achieve successful outcomes for resilient communities using COVID-19 federal funding sources.
