Pliant Solutions Celebrates FEMA!

White fireworks against a black sky.

On March 29, 2024, the FEMA Grants Management Modernization (GMM) Program reached full operational capability (FOC). This was a years-long effort involving multiple enhancements to product delivery. Pliant Solutions is grateful to be a part of a winning team that worked steadily and rigorously to achieve this challenging goal!

For GMM, FOC means the FEMA GO system is available for FEMA grants programs to utilize as they open their grant funding opportunities. To date, FEMA GO

  • supports over 84K users,
  • supports or has completed configuration to support 36 of FEMA’s 40 grant programs, 
  • has supported 57 funding opportunities,
  • obligated $5.3 billion of grant awards, and
  • has processed $2.1 billion payments.

Here’s to the FEMA GMM team and their continued success in serving the American people with the FEMA GO system!

He will share his thoughts on the current knowing-doing gap and share tips for closing the gap. With his wealth of experience and knowledge, Bryan will deliver an impactful presentation, contributing to discussions and advancing the “Heart and Soul of Agile” conference theme at TriAgile. 

TriAgile is a non-profit agile conference that serves the Southwestern region of the United States. This year will mark the 10th anniversary of TriAgile. This year’s conference will take place on the North Carolina State campus in Raleigh, NC, on Thursday, April 4th, 2024. Attendees can expect to gain valuable knowledge and insight into the advancement and continuous adoption of agile practices.

Miles expressed his excitement about this opportunity: “I love sharing new ideas with the agile community and am eager to combine my passions for agile, leadership development, and music in this talk. The world needs better leaders right now, starting with each of us. I’ve witnessed issues with leadership development strategies that don’t get traction. I’m eager to share insights that show how cultivating a leadership mindset can become attainable and accessible for your teams, no matter the maturity or stage of your organization.”
