State and Local Disaster Purchasing

GSA’s Disaster Purchasing Program allows state and local governments to buy supplies and services directly from all GSA Schedules to facilitate recovery from major disaster or facilitate disaster preparation and response. Whether it concerns a major weather event, terrorism, or nuclear, biological, chemical, or radiological attack, GSA’s strong partnerships can help cities and towns meet their needs quickly while saving taxpayer dollars.

Visit Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) to learn more about the program, required order language, and the benefits available to local municipalities, as well as Schedule contractors.

Purchases are limited to GSA Schedule contracts only. GSA eLibrary contains a list of all eligible suppliers. Schedule contractors, products and services are identified in GSA eLibrary and on GSA Advantage!®, with a Disaster Purchasing icon. Local officials are responsible for ensuring that the products or services purchased are being used to facilitate disaster preparation, and response or recovery from major disasters. All purchases made under this program must contain the mandatory order language below:

This order is placed under GSA Schedule number "insert number here" under the authority of the GSA Disaster Purchasing program. The products and services purchased will be used in preparation or response to disasters or recovery from major disaster declared by the President, or recovery from terrorism or nuclear, biological, chemical, or radiological attack.

Are you a contractor who wants to participate in this program? If you are a Schedule contractor who previously declined participation in the program, but would now like to join the program, please contact your GSA Administrative Contracting Officers (ACOs) for further instructions.

The mission of GSA is to deliver the best value in real estate, acquisition, and technology services to government and the American people. Learn more about the other programs GSA offers to state and local customers.
