This is the time to be meticulously correct

Post-disaster contracting rush leads to confusion

Emergency situations can make a complicated procurement process even more confusing. The Federal Acquisition Regulation, the guiding document for federal purchases, disperses its rules on emergency procurement throughout the verbose document, making it difficult for officials and contractors unfamiliar with emergency procurement law to figure out exactly what they can and cannot do.

Given the atmosphere is spectacular ill will between Federal and Gulf Coast authorities it is crucial that contractors refrain for exploiting this situation or fail to give value.
