SPARS The State Preparedness Assessment and Reporting Service (SPARS) is a web-based service that provides state administering agencies with tools to support the DHS grant monitoring, evaluation, and reporting process. SPARS is an Application Service Provider (ASP) offering that does not require the client organization to invest in IT equipment, infrastructure, or personnel, yet is tailored to each client's unique grant application workflow, procurement procedures, and reporting requirements as part of the initial service set-up. As such, the client is able to focus on the end use of the system without the hassles associated with installed software solutions.

SPARS supports five primary functions:

  • System Administration
  • Grant Administration
  • Project Administration
  • Equipment Administration
  • Reporting

The State Preparedness Assessment and Reporting Service (SPARS) was developed to meet the needs of state agencies charged with grant monitoring, readiness evaluation, and bi-annual reporting to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). SPARS provides a web-based toolkit, tailored to each state’s organization, workflow, and specific reporting needs, providing state administrators with full visibility to the allocation and expenditure of grant funds in real-time from the state, regional, or jurisdictional level. More than meeting the DHS reporting requirements, SPARS:

  • Automates the grant application process allowing for the submittal, review, and approval of jurisdictional projects and expenditures through a web-accessible system
  • Enforces grant application rules ensuring compliance by all sub-grantees with requirements and purchasing guidelines set by the state and DHS
  • Performs equipment procurement tracking and backend data entry logging providing a clear and concise audit trail available to system administrators at any time
  • Provides a secure means for collecting first responder readiness assessment data at the jurisdiction, region, and state levels
  • Presents real-time reports on your state’s progress in meeting state goals, objectives, and projects.
  • Enables administrators, through the Grant Adjustment Notice, to automatically move grant funds from one jurisdiction to another
  • Seamless M&A tracking that adheres to G&T rules

The K2Share SPARS solution offers a complete solution for conquering your day-to-day administrative tasks and making available a real-time reporting system for answering any management queries.
