Office of Federal Procurement Policy (May 31, 2007).
This document has been developed jointly by the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) and the Chief Acquisition Officers Council's working group on emergency contracting. It includes a number of management and operational best practices that agencies developed in response to Hurricane Katrina and other emergency situations. These practices should be considered in planning related to contingency operations, anti-terrorism activities, and national emergencies. For additional information, agencies may refer to the Emergency Response and Recovery Contracting Community of Practice Web site, accessible at <https://acc.dau.mil/emergencyresponse>.
This guide is intended to supplement, not supplant, agency-specific guidance, and should be read in conjunction with Part 18 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation on emergency acquisitions. The guide will be maintained electronically and updated, as needed, on the OFPP Web site <http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/procurement/>. This document supersedes OFPP's Emergency Procurement Flexibilities guide, issued in May 2003.
