Procurement

Subrecipients must procure goods and services using the federal procurement and contract requirements outlined in 2 CFR 200.318 – 200.326 for 2015 and 2016 floods allocations. These procurement requirements must be followed for reimbursement from the 2015 (P.L. 114-113) and 2016 (P.L. 114-223 and 245) allocations of Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery funds provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Please note that this applies to subrecipients for 2015 and 2016 floods allocations only, not current subrecipients under Ike, Dolly, or the 2011 wildfires. For now, contracts executed under Ike, Dolly, or the 2011 wildfire grants should reference the Technical Guidance Letters issued July 2016, but the federal procurement requirements will also apply to these grants once HUD's two-year grace period is over in August 2017. Therefore, any procurements issued in September and going forward will be subject to these same standards.

Grant Administrator and Engineer Procurement

GLO-CDR will allow a subrecipient to use a single vendor to both assist in the preparation of an application and to perform work under the grant. The vendor procurement should clearly identify preparation of an application and grant administration services within the solicitation document. The solicitation must take place prior to the initiation of the application process and comply with 2 CFR 200.318 – 200.326.

Scopes of Work

Subrecipients must utilize Scopes of Work provided by GLO-CDR in their contracts for grant administrators, engineers, and environmental service providers.

For additional guidance on procurement please contact Martin Rivera, Jr, QA&PI Director, at Martin.Rivera@glo.texas.gov
