Please join Meyers Nave Principal Richard Pio Roda for a virtual 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 15. Rich will be joined by co-presenters Steve Burke, Assistant City Attorney for the City of Oceanside and Jason Nutt, Assistant City Manager and Director of Public Works for the City of Santa Rosa.
Their session covers contracting best practices and procedures that public agencies should have in place before a disaster, steps that can be taken during the disaster to help manage the situation and plan for potential State and federal reimbursement, and what must happen immediately after the disaster 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 and qualifying for disaster reimbursements from FEMA or the State. The presenters will explain the ins and outs, including pre- and post-procurement best practices to receive reimbursement for disaster related expenditures including tips learned from responding to recent large-scale fires and COVID-19.
Date: Monday, March 15
