FEMA to re-bid contracts issued in aftermath of hurricanes

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is reviewing contracts it issued in the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita and will re-bid those that were accepted with little or no competition, acting FEMA Director R. David Paulison said Thursday.

"I am going to do everything humanly possible to make sure that we follow government procurement guidelines from here on out for the rest of the expenditures that we're going to do," Paulison told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. "You have given us $60 billion to manage this disaster and we have to spend it in a fiscally sound manner, and that's what we want to do. I'm going to do everything I can do to make that happen."
