  • Emergency contracting continues to be a top priority for the Federal Government and the numerous agencies responsible for emergency response and recovery.
  • To ensure that additional human resources are available to the government-wide contracting community during an emergency, GSA is directed pursuant to Section.870 of S. 3001, of the Duncan Hunter National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009 to establish the Contingency Contracting Corps (CCC).
  • The CCC will be available as a means of last resort to support any agency needing additional contracting personnel to support an emergency response and recovery effort.
  • Deployment is voluntary, subject to supervisory approval, and generally limited to a maximum of 30 days. Corps members will benefit from emergency contracting training and from the experience of contributing to the national interest during an emergency.
  • Federal employees who volunteered to support the hurricane Katrina recovery efforts found the experience rewarding and continue to be a valuable resource to their agencies.

FAI will provide training registration information to corps members Certification will include the following requirements below and is available shortly at www.fai.gov:
