The Emergency Repair Program


This Bureau program makes funds available for immediate repair/correction of deficiencies that meet emergency criteria at education facilities. Emergency repair and correction of deficiencies prevent injury and allow continuation of daily program operations. Funds are provided on an as-needed basis. Emergency repair needs result from unforeseen deficiencies, which require immediate corrective action to allow continued day-to-day operation of programs. The projects are completed through Bureau force account or emergency contracts. Examples of emergency repair include: repair or replacement of mechanical and utility system components; correction of imminent hazardous safety conditions; damage caused by fire; acts of nature (i.e., tornadoes, floods, snow, ice, lightening); and vandalism.
