October 6, 2014 - KGS Awarded FEMA Grants Management Contract
KGS was recently selected by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide Grants Management Training and Technical Assistance to grantees within Region II, which includes New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands, under a new Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). KGS will apply instructional design methodologies to develop classroom and virtual training on topics pertaining to financial, operational, and compliance management of the portfolio of FEMA Region II's Preparedness, Disaster, and Non-Disaster grants. KGS will also provide tailored technical assistance to grantees to help transfer new skills to the workplace.
"We are very excited to be able to partner with FEMA and Region II to help implement their transformative vision for how grants are managed across the region," said Pat Moneymaker, Chairman and CEO of KGS. "While FEMA Region II represents a new client for our firm, this work continues KGS's long record of helping Federal and State & Local agencies to improve the way they manage grants to ensure efficiency, transparency, auditability, and compliance with Federal regulations."
