Identification of Statutory Authority permitting Other Than Full and Open Competition: The statutory authority permitting other than full and open competition is 41 U.S.C. 3304(a)(1), implemented by the FAR Subpart 6.302-1 entitled "Only One Responsible Source and No Other Supplies or Services Will Satisfy Agency Requirements." 5. Demonstration that the Nature of the Acquisition Requires Use of the Authority Cited: a. Background information about the requirement. In response to the Louisiana Severe Storms, Flooding, the state received a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration on 14 August 2016 (DR-4277-LA). The Governor requested a direct housing program under the Housing Assistance Provision of the Individuals and Households Program (42 U.S.C 5174 (c)(1)(B)) under FEMA DR-4277-LA on 24 Aug 2016. Based on the damage resulting from the incident, FEMA determined a lack of available housing resources exist in and around the declared area, and authorized temporary direct housing assistance for eligible applicants on 1 September 2016. Fifteen (15) additional contracts (with option periods) were added to secure 352 additional pads to meet the demand of the increased number of approved applicants. This requires the justification to be increased from the initial amount of $8,000,000.00 to $16,000,000.00.

Details covering what events lead to the situation requiring use of other than full and open competition procedures. See section 5a above. c. Why considered alternatives will not work? Mobile home parks are not a service that is based on competition, but rather it is based geographical location. Therefore, utilizing FAR Part 6.302-1, only one responsible source and no other source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements and expedite the housing services needed. d. Which authority applies and why? The statutory authority permitting other than full and open competition is 41 U.S.C. 3304(a)(1), implemented by the FAR Subpart 6.302-1 entitled "Only One Responsible Source and No Other Supplies or Services Will Satisfy Agency Requirements." This authority applies because the availability for the services required can only be obtained from a limited number of responsible sources based on geographical location. As a result, no other services will satisfy the requirement. e. Explain the impact to the mission that would result if the J&A is not approved and, consequently, the product or service not provided? As a result of the Louisiana floods and the thousands of displaced survivors it is necessary to approve and execute this J&A to continue supporting the response and recovery efforts as a result of this disaster. Without this J&A, FEMA would not be able to continue providing immediate emergency temporary housing needs to disaster victims. 6. Description of Efforts Made to Ensure that Offers are Solicited from as Many Potential Sources as is Practicable: The Contracting Officer did not post a Sources Sought notification on FedBizOpps due to the large number of Mobile Home Park owners identified from market research by the Logistics Program Office and FAR Subpart 6.3 - Other Than Full and Open Competition. However, a FedBizOpps notice will be publicized, as required by FAR Subpart 5.102(a)(6) and 5.2. 7. Determination by the Contracting Officer that the Anticipated Cost to the Government will be Fair and Reasonable: The contracting officer determines that the anticipated prices will be fair and reasonable based on market research, current price lists, and comparison with similar items. Fair Market Rent (FMR) is defined by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and are primarily used to determine payment standard amount for various housing assistance programs. FMRs are gross rent estimates that include the cost of rent plus all tenant-paid utilities, except telephones, cable or satellite television service, and internet service. HUD uses the most accurate and current data available to develop the FMR estimates every fiscal year. FMRs are intended to be housing market-wide rent estimates that provide housing opportunities throughout the geographic area in which rental units are in direct competition. HUD publishes FMRs in the Federal Register, first as proposed estimates for public comment and then for final effect. The purpose of the public comments process is to identify areas where local government officials or residents believe the FMRs are too high or too low. All pad lease payments must be in line with the FMR for that specific county. Fair market rent for East Baton Rouge, Livingston, Ascension and Tangipahoa parishes varies from a low of $728 for a 1-bedroom and a high of $1,056 for a 3-bedroom. 8. Description of Market Research: FEMAs Disaster Housing Assessment Teams (DHAT) is responsible for working with the States housing department to locate all commercial mobile home parks and campgrounds in the declared counties. The DHATs then visit each site to perform feasibility assessments to determine if FEMA MHUs can be placed on site. When considering the placement of MHUs, FEMA must follow the abbreviated eight-step decision process for sites as outlined in 44 CFR Section 9.13, which states that no mobile home may be placed on a floodplain. Close coordination with the Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation Program and Hazard Mitigation is also required. In addition, each site must be capable of accepting 1, 2 or 3 bedroom units of various sizes and must be utility-ready or able to have utilities upgraded to meet the specifications of FEMAs MHUs. For DR-4277-LA, there are currently only four approved parishes: East Baton Rouge Parish, Livingston Parish, Ascension Parish, Tangipahoa Parish and DHAT identified a total of 10 Sites in East Baton Rouge Parish, 13 Sites in Livingston Parish, 3 Sites in Ascension Parish and 1 Site in Tangipahoa Parish. • East Baton Rouge Parish o 8 are not feasible for the following reasons:  Management could not be located/contacted  No lots available  In Flood Zone  Does not want to do business with FEMA o 15 sites are also possibly feasible pending additional inspections. It is anticipated that FEMA would contract with one or more of these 12 sites, depending on survivors need • Livingston Parish o 28 are not feasible for the following reasons:  Age Restricted  In flood zone  Not actually located in the state  Management could not be located  No pads available  Sites no longer exist o 13 are maybe feasible pending additional inspections. It is anticipated that FEMA would contract with one or more of these 13 sites, depending on survivors need • Ascension Parish o 28 are not feasible for the following reasons:  In flood zone  Management could not be located  No pads available o 4 sites are also possibly feasible pending additional inspections. It is anticipated that FEMA would contract with one or more of these 3 sites, depending on survivors need • Tangipahoa Parish o 28 are not feasible for the following reasons:  Management could not be located  No pads available  Sites no longer exist One (1) site is feasible pending additional inspections. It is anticipated that FEMA would contract with one or more of these 29 site, depending on survivors need.   9. Any Other Facts Supporting the Use of Other Than Full and Open Competition: The need to locate and secure the identified sites allowed occupants to bus routes, jobs, schools, and within a reasonable distance from their permanent dwelling and or family. Also see paragraph 5. 10. A Listing of the Sources, if Any That Express, in Writing, an Interest in the Acquisition: Potential Commercial Sites were determined and identified based on locations, needs, impacted population and the availability of pads. 11. A Statement of the Action, if Any, the Agency May Take to Remove or Overcome Any Barriers to Competition Before Any Subsequent Acquisition for Supplies or Services is Required: FEMA will continue to perform casework in coordination with the Individual Assistance Division to maximize the use of available existing housing resources based on a reasonable commuting distance of 50 miles. This is performed for each household prior to being determined to have a continued need for direct housing assistance. FEMA, in coordination with the State of Louisiana, work with applicants to identify and achieve a permanent housing plan. If necessary, because of extraordinary circumstances, at the written request of the State, FEMA may extend the 18 month period of assistance for temporary direct housing assistance if an extension in the publics interest. FEMA will assess penalty fees for occupants who remain in or maintain possession of the MHU after the end of the approved period of assistance in accordance with 44 C.F.R Section 206.117(b)(1)(ii)(H). The park owners for the selected are all small business with the majority of them doing business with the Government for the first time. By contracting with these parks FEMA is generating a network of new vendors, thereby, increasing the market pool and allowing future competition.
