How EM Grantees Can Automate FFATA Compliance

Managing emergency management grants is undoubtedly complex, given the multitude of regulations and reporting requirements. One relates to the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA), which requires prime grants recipients to capture and report subaward and executive compensation data via the FFATA Subaward Reporting System (FSRS). This process adds more to grant managers’ already-full plates, and it’s one of many reasons why having the right technology is essential.  

Civix’s EM Grants Manager is the only software solution designed specifically for state emergency management agencies, and it’s a complete end-to-end system that simplifies the process of managing large scale disaster grants from application to closeout – including FFATA reporting requirements

With just a couple of mouse clicks, EM Grants Manager can generate a file that can be imported into FSRS to report on all subawards (or amendments to subawards) that have met the $30,000 Federal Award threshold.  

It can also automatically collect FFATA details from subrecipients on an annual basis. This data is then included in the export to FSRS every month. 

Beyond FFATA, EM Grants Manager unites the management of grants, workflow, documents, and contacts – and it enables collaboration and applicant login through one integrated solution. 

Used to manage over $135 billion in grants, EM Grants Manager has been integral in the recovery from the largest disasters in recent decades, including the COVID pandemic and Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, Michael, Sandy, and Katrina. 

This leading EM grants solution reflects Civix’s commitment to innovation and relentless determination to completely revolutionize how governments do business. It’s how Civix secured a spot on the GovTech 100 list for the past six consecutive years.
