Affected Council District(s) or citywide? Citywide

 

Contract Control Number: FINAN-202263300

 

Vendor/Contractor Name (including any “DBA”): Base Tactical Disaster Recovery Inc.

 

Type and Scope of services to be performed:

 

When COVID-19 emerged in Denver in March 2020, the Department of Finance identified FEMA public assistance as a program that would reimburse emergency expenses that had already incurred and were likely to escalate. Owing to the complexity of the FEMA claims process and having already developed a successful rapport after the 2013 floods, the City entered into an initial, three-month contract with Base Tactical Disaster Recovery Inc., that was subsequently extended until December 31, 2022.

 

Over that period, Base Tactical played a critical role in the City securing $134.7M in obligated - or approved -funding from FEMA across many programmatic areas: emergency sheltering, personal protective equipment, emergency operations center expenses, Denver and Health & Hospital operations, public testing, airport operations, and vaccine administration. Base Tactical’s assistance compiling the extensive documentation required for FEMA claims and request for reimbursement; their strategic advice when positioning proposals to the Colorado Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management as well as to FEMA; their expertise in preparing and delivering required reporting; and their partnership when responding to subrecipient monitoring conducted by the State have all proven invaluable as the City responds to and begins to recover from Covid-19. Moving forward, these services are anticipated to continue for the balance of 2022 and into 2023. Apart from a small amount for non-FEMA related reporting for the Coronavirus Relief Funds, the contact is paid for in full by FEMA through an allocation for administrative expenses.

 

Scope of Work: Assist the City in processing the City’s COVID-19 FEMA claim including:

 

                     Provide grant management assistance and advice

                     Preparation of draft correspondence to State and FEMA, as required

                     Review eligibility issues, as they occur

                     Document filing and cost tracking to support grant requirements

                     Assist in capturing and summarizing eligible costs

                     Collect required documentation from Applicant departments

                     Review documentation prepared by departments and contractors to ensure eligibility

                     Submit Requests for Reimbursement to state and federal agencies

                     Attend meetings with Applicant, State, FEMA and HHS, as necessary

                     Work with the Applicant to resolve grant disputes that may arise

                     If the Applicant disagrees with FEMA and / or HHS determinations, assist to strategize and write appeals
