Flooding – Resource Center

The 2023 flood season has already been difficult for many communities across the United States, with many areas under evacuation orders and more than 20 million citizens under flood alerts. With unprecedented storms on the west coast and the Midwest’s flooding season yet to come, this is a reminder to communities across the nation of the devastation and destruction that floods pose to our communities, neighbors, friends, and families.

Your recovery starts now

HEAR FROM US

    On January 14, 2023, President Biden declared a major disaster in the State of California and ordered Federal aid to supplement State, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by severe winter storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides beginning on December 27, 2022. With this declaration, funding became available for the affected areas as damage assessment continues.

    As this early flooding in California has indicated, the risk of catastrophic floods exists every year, and heavy downpours and storms often lead to dangerous flooding conditions. Because flooding can occur anywhere in the United States, it is important for all communities to assess their flood risk, prepare and practice response plans, and learn from past floods.

    Recently, communities across the United States have made significant efforts to prepare for a flooding event, as well as building the capacity to respond to and recover from disasters related to flooding. However, when the impacts are severe and the geographic area is very large, many communities, counties, and states rely on experienced contractors with the necessary expertise to support and augment their staff and community services for a wide variety needs. Services may include response and recovery efforts related to the current flood season and any other disaster or emergency conditions that may cause widespread damage and/or put life, health, safety, and essential public services at risk.

    EMERGENCY CONTRACT VEHICLES

    Additionally, following a declared state of emergency, the Federal Government allows local and state government to bypass their standard procurement policies and implement emergency procurement procedures. In times of emergency, understanding these unique contract vehicles can be essential in saving time, money, and resources. ISC has expertise with these unique contract vehicles, which allow for us to guide our clients on how to easily and expeditiously get through the contracting process.

    Further, contracting with ISC is easy, and a number of pre-established contract vehicles can be utilized to facilitate the procurement process.
