The NFFMC maintains a baseline inventories and Indefinite Delivery / Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) type contracts with capabilities to provide flood fight materials to USACE districts throughout the continental United States. Outside the continental United States is on a case-by-case basis.
State, local, and Tribal governments can borrow flood fight supplies and equipment and receive onsite technical advice. The diagram below shows the process for obtaining supplies, equipment, or technical advice. NOTE: Tribal governments can request directly from the USACE District the flooding is occurring.
According to Regulation ER 500-1-1 4.3.e.(1), “Loaned supplies and equipment should be returned in the same condition as it was when lent, replaced in kind, or reimbursement made to USACE. District commanders may waive loan replacement requirements for expendable supplies when a presidential disaster declaration under authority of the Stafford Act has been made. Reimbursement is required for all other situations.”
