Hurricane Florence Resources

With the onset of Hurricane Florence, NCACC is here to support counties.  You may visit NCACC’s disaster preparedness page for updates and links to various resources, including this page (which will be updated as information is received).  Counties are welcome to share any of this content on your county website or social media platform.

Disaster-Related Contract Guidance

As counties bid disaster-related work, keep in mind that ALL contracts (purchase, service, construction, repair, architect and engineer services, etc.) in the amount of $10,000 or more must satisfy federal Uniform Guidance (Minority & Women-Owned Business Enterprises) outreach requirements. An easy way to satisfy this requirement is to post your bid solicitation on the NC Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB) office website at the link below:

https://ncadmin.nc.gov/businesses/historically-underutilized-businesses-hub/submit-contractor-bid-opportunity-hub

If you have any questions about the HUB website, please contact John Guenther with the NC HUB office at john.guenther@doa.nc.gov
