Federal Procurement Policy: 2 CFR Part 200CDBG-DR Procurement
Procurement of materials and services often presents challenges for CDBG-DR grantees, who tend to be unfamiliar with the federal procurement policies they must follow to meet HUD‘s compliance standards. Grantees cannot simply begin purchasing materials and services using their existing procurement policies, but must update them to be compliant with federal regulations as outlined in 2 CFR Part 200.
This policy includes requirements such as procuring on a competitive basis, meeting requirements for contracting with minority- and women-owned business enterprises (MWBEs), and using contractors approved to work on federal projects.
