Disaster recovery and resiliency

We understand and respect the challenges federal, state, and local governments face with multiple competing priorities in the wake of a natural disaster.

Disaster recovery assistance

Whether a state or community is seeking to invest in greater resilience against disasters or facing the long, arduous process of recovering from one, KPMG is well positioned to help governmental entities design, implement, and administer innovative and sustainable solutions.

KPMG helps to assess pre- and post-disaster resiliency needs and opportunities; formulate action plans to secure funding; design responsive governance structures, programs, public-private partnerships, and other initiatives; and craft and execute performance and compliance oversight and monitoring protocols focused on both meeting community aims and applicable regulations.

Having joined forces with Government in multiple recovery scenarios, such as Hurricanes Sandy, Harvey, Irma, Katrina, Fay, Michael & Ike, as well as 9/11 Ground Zero, KPMG is able to leverage those recovery actions to provide administrators with trusted approaches that include:

  • Combining intelligent automation with data & analytics to establish a powerful information engine that scales quickly to address the demand for information
  • Implementing leading tools and technology with embedded integrity controls into the financial reimbursement process to protect both state and Federal funds.
  • Navigating the complexities of HUD and FEMA compliance standards, while mapping out a strategic vision for recovery that allows the Government to rebuild resilient, sustainable communities
