Get Help Accessing Funding to Move Records Requests into the Secure Cloud

For Operational Continuity During COVID-19 and Beyond

Your agency’s open records, legal requests, complaints, and other information exchange responsibilities won’t go away just because your budget is shrinking. 

Do more with less by choosing the GovQA cloud-based SaaS platform suite of workflow automation tools (including powerful redaction functions) to:

Securely modernize your agency’s handling of all types of requests from the public, media, and other agencies with no IT support required from your staff and no limits on file sizes or types.

Replace legacy systems with the telework-friendly GovQA enterprise productivity cloud solution using CARES Act funding (and proposed IT modernization act funding). Invest in GovQA, and let us handle implementation, setup, user questions, and tech support. You can even put money back into your budget with payment processor integration that lets your agency more easily collect fees for materials and time.

Where Can You Get Funds?

The Federal Government has provided CARES Act funding for COVID-19 related expenses necessary to the function of government including expenses to improve telework capabilities for public employees to enable compliance with COVID-19 public health precautions. COVID-19 outreach, education, cybersecurity, IT modernization, and emergency response communication and management tools are also eligible for CARES Act funding. The GovQA COVID-19 Records Response System meets all of these criteria. Facilitate business continuity and support digital delivery of critical government services by enabling your staff to work remotely while still meeting the high expectations of the public-at-large for responsiveness during and after the COVID-19 crisis.
