CARES Funding and Digital Transformation

How government agencies can utilize federal funding to modernize their IT environments

State and Local government agencies eligible for CARES funding have spent less than half of their allocated money for COVID-19 related initiatives in supporting Digital Transformation and Remote Work platforms. To elaborate, 94% of agencies have yet to come close to accessing their total allocated funding. Federal funding for CARES ends December 30, 2020, potentially leaving tens of millions of dollars on the table for many government institutions.

The main pain point IT departments within those agencies face is creating a comprehensive plan, designing the environment for maximum compliance and user experience, and deploying the infrastructure and applications required. Strategic Communications works closely with CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, and IT Directors in designing short-term and long-term plans for the following Digital Transformation and Modernization efforts:

  • Cloud consumption and spend on short-term and long-term initiatives
  • Pre-funded Statements of Work for cloud migrations, optimizations, and architecting
  • Contact Tracing, Virtual Workforce, Telehealth, Distance Learning platform integration
  • Cybersecurity, Compliance, and Governance
