California issues RFI for homeowner disaster recovery software
California – The State of California Department of Technology issued a request for information (RFI) for Owner Occupied Reconstruction (OOR) to assist the state’s Department Housing and Community Development (HCD) in developing a new federally funded program named ReCoverCA.
Using the OOR process on www.RecoverCA.org, the department plans to provide federal disaster funds to assist homeowners in rebuilding or rehabilitating their primary residences after a natural disaster.
The state is requesting information on existing OOR software systems used in disaster recovery. It is seeking a cloud hosted, Software as a Service (SaaS) OOR system that will integrate with HCD’s grant management system (GMS). The system will need to provide live and shared data between the two systems. The state expects the OOR contractor to develop the GMS interface.
Although HCD will release a separate RFP for the program management of the OOR program, this RFI is for the software system solution only.
