SAN FRANCISCO, California – May, 2020 — SimpliGov, a leading provider of government workflow automation and online forms, today announced that the City of San Jose in northern California has selected the SimpliGov platform for workflow automation and online forms with integrated electronic signatures.
COVID-19 impact response initiative helps support the city with a digital version of FEMA 213RR form to capture requests for emergency funding from the federal government.
One of the first forms that the city is deploying is a digital version of the FEMA 213RR form, which is being used to capture requests for necessary supplies, equipment and resources that are needed to respond to emergencies. The 213RR form is also the required form to secure funding reimbursement from the federal government in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through its COVID-19 Impact Response Center initiative, SimpliGov is helping cities like San Jose use digital tools to automate essential processes.
The city’s shift to the SimpliGov cloud-based platform will help streamline the processing of requests needed for emergency response and will optimize the process through which the city requests reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to pay for personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks, hand sanitizer and latex gloves, as well as for custodial services, fuel, remote computer equipment and additional staffing required in light of COVID-19.
