Challenge: The Pandemic Response Accountability Committee (PRAC) required a rich and immersive website to empower public engagement with the PRAC and provide insight into the use of Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds. The PRAC was established by the CARES Act within the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency to promote transparency and oversight of the approximately $2.6 trillion in economic relief and other funding provided by the Federal Government to U.S. citizens, businesses, medical providers, and impacted industries. The PRAC established and maintains the pandemicoversight.gov website to provide public transparency and illustrate the allocation of CARES Act funding.

Solution: Smartronix' team of industry thought leaders from Mobomo, Domo, Woolpert, Grant Thornton, and Microsoft worked with the PRAC to redesign and launch the new site in less than seven weeks. The Smartronix team understood that the U.S. Government was at an inflection and tasked an enormous undertaking to the PRAC to provide the public with proper oversight and transparency during challenging times. Smartronix wanted the website to be inviting and easy to use and bring in the best data visualization tools, Designers, Geospatial Experts, and Fraud and Analytics Reporting Experts to develop a robust platform that the PRAC can use to provide real-time information and tools to the public.

The Smartronix-led Team will continue to deliver capabilities to the PRAC. The beta website provides:
