The May 2016 release of Tempest-GEMS aids grant applicants with procurement compliance. The web-based software assists users in scoring procurement policies against the new federal standards represented within the “Super Circular”, 2CFR200. Furthermore, the software scores each procurement cycle against the new federal law. All state and local governments must be in compliance with this law by January 2017. Organizations have one year to comply or risk losing grant funds including those provided by FEMA for disaster recovery.
