Contracting in Disasters

Contracting in a disasterContractors are our force-multiplier during a disaster response. We count on them to help us meet our mission requirements quickly and completely. The USACE has pre-awarded contracts for major emergency response missions, such as bottled water, packaged ice, debris, and temporary roofing. These contracts are part of the Advanced Contracting Initiative. ACI provides depth to the Corps’ ability to respond quickly and effectively.

The USACE developed a contractor registry to assist us with our disaster response mission. The Corps uses its engineering and contracting capabilities to support FEMA and other federal, state and local government agencies in a wide variety of missions during natural and man-made disasters.

Information in this registry will be used by Corps offices that are looking for specific goods or services during emergencies. Submission of information is voluntary. Information will be considered for official use only within the federal government. 

Submission of information to USACE Disaster Resource Contractor Registry does not expressly or implicitly commit the federal government to procurement of products or services.

All companies doing business with the Army Corps of Engineers MUST be registered with the Central Contractor Registration and all registrations must be in an active status. The registration will become active within 24 to 48 hours following completion of the registration process.
