DHS/FEMA/PIA-052 Grants Management Modernization (GMM)


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Grant Management Modernization (GMM) program owns and operates the GMM Streamlined Platform for Agile Release and Transformation Acceleration (SPARTA) system. Through the development and deployment of the GMM SPARTA system, GMM seeks to streamline grants management across the Agency’s 40-plus grant programs through a user-centered, business-driven approach. The GMM SPARTA system will consolidate the functionalities of FEMA’s ten legacy IT systems (listed in Appendix C) into a single grants management IT platform. FEMA is publishing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) because GMM SPARTA collects, uses, maintains, retrieves, and disseminates personally identifiable information (PII) of applicants, recipients, and sub-recipients for the purpose of executing FEMA grants programs.
