National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)



Description



The Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Headquarters is seeking a contractor under full and open competition to conduct studies on the impact of climate change on the National Flood Insurance Program and to determine whether policies and methodologies for mapping coastal special flood hazard areas should be revised. This involves three different (albeit related) studies or analyses to be performed. They include: (1) a study recommended by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) that would analyze the impact of climate change on the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP); (2) concerns regarding the use of the primary frontal dune in determining the landward boundary of Velocity (V) Zones; and (3) questions regarding whether the NFIP should map and manage coastal A Zones separately from riverine A Zones and develop insurance rates that are specific to this new insurance class.
