Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) response to the current COVID-19 crisis.
Due to the overwhelming response, USACE is migrating to another server. The Defense Digital Service is helping USACE respond and organize our data So USACE can make sure the right people get your information. Please use the input form at https://dds.mil/usacecovid for this and any future entries.
If you have already sent in information to this address, you may have gotten an email from an email address ending in @friends.dds.mil. This is a result of that server change. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding. Future emails regarding this will come from an email address ending in "dds.mil" in addition to ones coming from @usace.army.mil.
Although USACE is using a DDS server, the information comes to USACE for the teams' analysis. You'll receive another email if there are further questions. In some cases, critical additional information is still needed. USACE analysts will be contacting you at a friends.DDS.mil or a usace.army.mil email address to obtain that information. Some of your contact information may be made available to those looking for subcontractors. Please be sure your entry in the at the SAM.gov website under the "Disaster Registry" tab is up to date and complete. For more information about how to register in SAM.gov or get help in marketing your company to the government, please visit this site:

USACE is looking for firms able to build-out or retrofit existing structures into alternate care facilities. This involves medical grade remodeling of existing structures such as hotels and dormitories. It also includes other freestanding, temporary structures that can be erected inside or outside of large existing structures.
USACE is also looking for firms that can provide freestanding, self-contained medical care units. These could be placed outside or in large indoor structures.
If you have other services or supplies that you are interested in subcontracting to a prime contractor, you may mark those as "other" on the form below. Lastly, please indicate whether you have inventory on hand to perform your service or provide your supply item immediately. Some vendors are experiencing supply chain issues. It is helpful to know how if that has impacted you.
Currently USACE is not contracting for Hotels or other facilities with leasing or purchase agreements. For those offering Hotel space and other facilities, these decisions are being made locally at the State level. FEMA has provided a website which lists State Offices of Emergency Management, https://www.fema.gov/emergency-management-agencies
The Fort Worth District fully supports the Government’s policy of placing a fair proportion of our contracts with qualified small, small disadvantaged, women-owned, veteran-owned, service-disabled veteran owned, Historically Underutilized Business Zone, and Historically Black College and Universities/Minority Institutions. We consider small business to be the heart of the U.S. economy and a very vital part of the Corps’ procurement process. A Deputy has been appointed to the Office of Small Business Programs (D, OSBP) for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-Southwestern District(SWD). They have been assigned to the USACE(SWF)-Fort Worth District. Their role is to “aid, counsel, assist and protect, insofar as is possible, the interests of small business concerns in order to preserve free competitive enterprise, to ensure that a fair proportion of the total purchases and contracts or subcontracts for property and services for the Government be placed with small business enterprises.”
