FEMA has developed a new form, GPD–PR, to replace the SF–PPR for collection of reporting information required by regulation and statute. No changes are being made to the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) or Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) requirements for layered security projects. FEMA continues to provide a sample template for use by applicants, but there is no required format for an MOU/MOA.
