Florida Emergency Network
The Division of State Purchasing has organized the Florida Emergency Network, which is comprised of two unique groups. The first group is the Florida Emergency Supplier Network (FESN), which is a master list of suppliers willing to be a resource for the purchase of products and services during emergencies. The second group is the Florida Emergency Purchasing Network (FEPN), which is a master list of state and local purchasing professionals willing to assist other agencies during emergencies.
Suppliers complete an electronic data sheet available online, providing a company profile, identifying commodities and services they can supply, how to contact the firm during and outside regular business hours, and the firm's readiness for emergency response.
Purchasing agents complete a data sheet available online, providing a personal profile, identifying areas of experience and professional certifications, how to contact the individual during and outside regular business hours, and the individual's degree of availability to work during emergencies.
