The Federal Emergency Management Agency wants woman-owned small businesses to take heed of this upcoming opportunity to work with its chief financial officer.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is working toward the release of a final solicitation for financial and IT audit services in support of a team within FEMA's office of the chief financial officer.

FEMA expects to release that request for proposals on Nov. 9 with award eyed for the second quarter of calendar year 2024, which translates to the third quarter of the government's fiscal 2024.

The blanket purchase agreement should have a ceiling of $50 million-to-$100 million over up to five years, FEMA said in a Tuesday notice to its Acquisition Planning Forecast System.

The pact is geared toward woman-owned small businesses and focuses on the FEMA CFO office's risk management and compliance division, which is responsible for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of FEMA's financial data.

That division also is responsible for detecting and responding to errors, fraud, or theft in accordance with DHS policies and federal laws.

No incumbent information is available at this time.
