Dewberry Completes FEMA Logistics Support Contract Task Orders
Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, completed two task orders under the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Logistics Construction Support Contract (LCSC) to support the FEMA Logistics Management Directorate (LMD) in collecting and analyzing data on the private-sector supply chain. The task orders were completed in preparation for Hurricanes Erik and Flossie in August and for Hurricane Dorian, which made landfall in September.
Dewberry, with the Center for Naval Analyses (CNA), American Logistical Aid Network (ALAN), and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Center for Transportation and Logistics, deployed a team of supply chain analysts, engineers, geospatial information system (GIS) technicians, and emergency management professionals to Washington, D.C., to support the FEMA LMD in collecting and analyzing data on the private-sector supply chain for Hawaii in preparation of Hurricanes Erik and Flossie that threatened the Hawaiian Islands on August 2, 2019.
On August 27, 2019, the firm, along with CNA, ALAN, and MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics, reactivated teams to collect and analyze data on the private-sector supply chain along Hurricane Dorian’s path. The team focused on the status of life-sustaining private-sector supply chains, such as food, water, and energy; their critical enablers, including grid power, transportation infrastructure, pipelines, telecommunications, and banking systems; and the upstream portions of these supply chains outside the impacted area in the event of a nationally declared disaster. The team analyzed impacts to lifelines for Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.
FEMA’s LMD provides an efficient, transparent, and flexible logistics capability to procure and deliver goods and services that support disaster survivors during response and recovery efforts for communities. The program focuses on delivering resources efficiently in support of state, local, and tribal governments and territories.
