Inspection, Training and Record Requirements

Equipment Inspections:

Solicitation resources are required to pass a pre-award inspection, prior to award.  Inspections must be completed by an approved Equipment Inspection Provider before May 1 of the year of award in order to be placed on a Dispatch Priority List (DPL) for that fire season. Vendors are responsible to contact an Equipment Inspection Provider to schedule an inspection and provide manufacturers documentation to support equipment specifications, if necessary.  See the weblink below for a list of approved Equipment Inspection Providers. Replacement equipment is also required to complete a pre-award inspection. Continue to monitor the FACT Web page for additional updates.

**If your equipment is not inspected before MAY 1, of the year of award, you may receive an award under the solicitation; however, your resource(s) will be suspended for that season. Equipment inspected on or after MAY 1, may be utilized under an Incident Only EERA (Emergency Equipment Rental Agreement) however, the EERA will be limited to the 90% report rate and not the rate quoted in your VIPR agreement. Your resources will be reinstated for the following calendar year if they are inspected before MAY 1, of that year. Resources not inspected by MAY 1, of the year following the solicitation will be canceled.**
