PSATS Submits Comments to FEMA on Simplified Procedures Policy
PSATS submitted comments to the Federal Emergency Management Agency on its Proposed Policy: Public Assistance Simplified Procedures. The policy would eliminate Quarterly Progress Reports for small projects, reduce documentation for cost estimates, and allow acceptance of estimates certifications for damages in lieu of providing comprehensive source documentation.
PSATS expressed support for the policy, but raised a concern that if an applicant has multiple projects, some completed and others to be completed, would the applicant have to wait to receive the remaining non-federal cost share? If so, PSATS requested that these provisions be revisited.
