REI Systems | January 31, 2023
On January 30, 2023, REI Systems announced that it would deploy GovGrants®, a full-lifecycle grants management SaaS product, for the US Department of Treasury IAF (Inter-American Foundation). IAF works with entrepreneurs, innovators, and local leaders in underserved Caribbean and Latin America areas to help them build more peaceful, prosperous, and democratic communities. Since 1972, the foundation has provided nearly 5,000 grants totaling more than $680 million.
The IAF sought to reinvent its grants management approach with an extensive cloud-hosted product, with assistance from the Grants Management QSMO (Quality Services Management Office). GovGrants® was chosen because it is a highly secure, role-based, and accessible grants management system that adheres to the Federal Integrated Business Framework (FIBF). Furthermore, it provided the multilingual capability that IAF required to support its grantees. The system includes many native features, such as powerful dashboards and reporting built on Tableau, financial system integrations, and various CRM-type features.
GovGrants® is a customizable product built on Salesforce's cloud platform that is FedRAMP-certified, making it dependable, secure, and simple for internal and external stakeholders to use. In addition, the solution is currently listed on the GSA MAS Information Technology contract, ensuring easy procurement and deployment as a software-as-a-service solution by any federal agency.
Wagish Bhartiya, REI's Chief Growth Officer, shared, "REI Systems has been a leading provider of grant systems across government for more than 20 years. As the grants market evolves, we are excited to evolve with it. There are numerous agencies seeking pre-built, turn-key capabilities that can be easily tailored to fit their business needs. That's why we built GovGrants as a COTS product. We are thrilled to be serving IAF's mission of advancing democracy by supporting community-led development with a modern technology solution."

Relativity | February 21, 2023
Relativity and Deloitte have recently announced that U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, has deployed the FedRAMP-authorized SaaS platform of Relativity called RelativityOne Government, as a cloud-based solution for Freedom of Information Act, FOIA, requests.
Relativity, a technological solutions provider for the legal sector, with Deloitte's litigation support and e-discovery services, helps the agency migrate to the RelativityOne Government platform. This migration will offer solutions related to flexibility, security, and extensibility of the cloud-driven data discovery product to the EPA, with the support of artificial intelligence.
The EPA has to process huge volumes of FOIA requests every year. This solution would assist EPA with the volume of FOIA requests, accelerating the processing speed and flexibility. It will handle litigation and investigation of the requests' varying sizes accurately without any tension of cybersecurity. It creates a repeatable and consistent approach to the problem, offering cost-effective, secure, and efficient output in the agency's processes.
Managing Director of Government Sales at Relativity, Doug Cowan, said, "Our advanced AI capabilities empower teams at the EPA to spend less time combing through mountains of data and more time collaborating and gleaning insights from analytics." He added, "The EPA is able to use the information to guide courses of action for their litigation matters or FOIA requests, which is additive to the litigation and e-discovery matters in which they were already leveraging RelativityOne Government. We look forward to seeing what the EPA will accomplish with a platform built exclusively for the cloud, and hope that it encourages other U.S. government agencies that are contemplating the use of SaaS solutions for their e-discovery work."
