St. James Parish School Board – FEMA Public Assistance Grant Administration & Project Management

Overview of projects

Vanir has been continuously supporting the St. James Parish School Board since 2008, performing facility condition assessments and replacement studies that cover St. James School District’s entire facility portfolio of 840,000 square feet across 12 campuses. We have also provided program, project and grant management services for the District’s disaster recovery projects for the Katrina and Gustav hurricanes, and assisted the Board in successfully closing out all grant awards for these disasters.

When COVID-19 was declared an emergency disaster in March of 2020, our grants administration team began assisting the Board with its FEMA Public Assistance Category B claim.

Serving the Board for more than a decade

Vanir was initially hired by the Board in 2008 to correct issues on previous construction projects. Since that time, we have provided comprehensive owner’s representative services on various projects, as well as management of the District’s 2012 bond program. Our services have included management of project architects, performing budget and schedule tracking, change order validation and contract administration.
