It is refreshing to see an agency so honest about its deficiencies and opportunities for improvement. Noting struggles with data analytics and management across the enterprise, and that reporting and complex analyses are limited in speed, quality, and accuracy, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) EAD is keenly aware that these and other limitations reduce the agency’s ability to deliver information, tools, and insights needed by internal stakeholders and external partners. 

As such, FEMA recently announced plans to release an RFP for a three-year contract to directly support EAD’s efforts in building a high-impact, real-time, decision analysis capability across the agency by: Delivering analytics and business intelligence to FEMA; Building analytical capacity across the enterprise by connecting people to talent, training, and tools they need to work smart; and Developing and implementing business solutions to agency-wide data management and governance efforts. 

As part of a recent market research activity, the agency was seeking to better understand the number and types of large and small businesses that have experience in database development and enhancement capabilities for improved functionality and support to advanced data analytics; that have experience developing requirements documentation (e.g., data dictionaries, data models, and business rules); who have experience with Python, Tableau, SQL; and any that have proven experience with and an understanding of the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018 (“Evidence Act”).

Exact details as to the timing and any small business decisions have not been announced yet, but with a tentative start date of September 1, 2023, companies large and small are known to be actively working to influence the direction of this Enterprise Analytics Support (EAS) procurement.
