GSA Disaster Assistance Purchasing


· The Defense Authorization ACT of 2007 (Public Law 109-364) included Section 833 which permits GSA to open schedules up to state and local government use in response to a Presidential Declaration of a major disaster (under the Stafford Act) and to facilitate recovery from terrorism or nuclear, biological, chemical or radiological attack.

· This does include advance purchasing and pre-positioning in preparation for a disaster.
