How Can Public Works Departments Prepare for Emergencies and Be Eligible for Federal & State Reimbursement?

Please join Meyers Nave Principal Eric Casher and Of Counsel Steve Burke for a presentation titled “Public Contracting Requirements: Emergency Preparedness and Federal and State Reimbursement” at the Public Works Officers Institute hosted by the League of California Cities on March 19. Eric and Steve will be joined by co-presenters Jason Nutt, Assistant City Manager and Director of Public Works for the City of Santa Rosa, and Robert Pesapane, Director, Recovery Division, FEMA Region IX.

This session covers contracting best practices and procedures to have in place before a disaster, steps to take during the event, and what must happen immediately after to move forward quickly to address the affected community’s needs. Laws, regulations and executive orders have specific requirements for procuring emergency services to restore a destroyed area. The presenters will explain the ins and outs, including pre- and post-procurement best practices, that public agencies need to follow to be eligible for reimbursement for disaster related expenditures from FEMA and/or the State of California.

Date: Thursday, March 19
Time: 3:15-4:30 PM
