Bob, I’m in OGM this week working with Laura Watson and one of the objectives is to work on the devolution of Grant Officer’s authority to award emergency grants in the event a disaster occurs and NO can no longer carry out that essential function. For this reason, I just met with Lidia Fiore and David King in OUI to learn how they process the request for DUA funding. Lidia stated they just recently started looking into how to devolve their authority if such a disaster were to occur. At the end of our session, Lidia ask if you and I could set up a conference next week to initiate the discussion on how OUI would devolve to Dallas and who would be the primary POC.
When I get in Monday, I’ll get with you to give you a more detail account
