dc.description.abstractConsiderable public scrutiny has been focused on the Federal Governmentb2ss, especially the Federal Emergency Management Agencyb2ss (FEMA) supposed inadequate, misdirected, and slow response to the acquisition needs required for responding to the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. This seemingly failed response quite possibly cost the Federal Government billions in wasted taxpayer dollars and has affected the livelihood of thousands. Analyzing what went wrong and examining available acquisition concepts, organizations, processes, and technologies that could be leveraged for future disaster responses is the focus of our MBA project. The projectb2ss product provides some proposed solutions to assist FEMAb2ss acquisition mission, along with some recommended technologies for executing these solutions.en_US
