Risk MAP Overview

As part of its activities related to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has begun the transition from Map Modernization to Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning (Risk MAP) in Fiscal Year (FY) 2009. The vision for Risk MAP is to work collaboratively with State, local, and tribal entities to deliver quality data that increases public awareness and lead to action that reduces risk to life and property.

Overview of RAMPP Responsibilities

Risk Assessment, Mapping, and Planning Partners (RAMPP), a joint venture of Dewberry, URS, and ESP, is one of three Production and Technical Services (PTS) contractors under the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Risk MAP phase of the National Flood Insurance Program. RAMPP will provide comprehensive floodplain mapping, GIS, and hazard risk mitigation services for FEMA to include specifically serving FEMA Regions II (NJ, NY, PR, and VI), III (DC, DE, MD, PA, VA, WV), and VI (AR, LA, NM, OK, TX).

RAMPP is also responsible for operating Regional Support Centers (RSCs) located near the FEMA regional offices, processing Letters of Map Correction, and providing production and technical services for flood insurance studies as well as digital flood insurance rate map production, studies, hazard risk assessment and mitigation planning, outreach, and other services. RAMPP is focused on completing tasks similar to FEMA’s Map Modernization program, as well as attending to priority needs such as levees and coastal analyses. Following this phase, RAMPP will assist FEMA with the implementation of Risk MAP, which will involve expanding the traditional flood mapping scope to include risk assessment and mitigation products.
