On November 16, Deloitte announced a strategic alliance with Ava Labs to “enhance the recovery of state and local governments from natural disasters and public health emergencies.” The Avalanche blockchain will be used to improve the company’s new cloud solution.
According to Deloitte, the company’s recently launched Close As You Go (CAYG) platform is intended to help state and local governments streamline disaster reimbursement claims. These requests are directed specifically to the United States Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). CAYG’s cloud platform leverages Avalanche (AVAX) to provide a decentralized and transparent system that “empowers both funders and funding recipients”.
Alex Haseley, principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and head of Deloitte’s utilities and government crisis management portfolio, says CAYG is playing a “critical role” in helping to strengthen these types of federal emergency efforts. “When a disaster strikes a community, national and local authorities must act quickly and deliberately to respond,” Haseley said.
