State and Local Government Disaster Management

How to prepare for and manage natural disasters and cyberattacks.

Proactive agencies are strategic in their approach to natural disasters.

They have an integrated approach combining pre-disaster planning, post-disaster recovery and good governance to protect citizens and businesses from recurring and evolving threats. For state and local governments, it’s all about maintaining the trust of the public, and doing as much as they can with tight budgets.

KPMG helps government agencies maximize these strategies and leading practices to increase the resilience of public infrastructure. We help our state and local clients refine policies, technology, and financial management practices to improve emergency preparedness and restore community infrastructure after major disasters.

Before, during and after a disaster, we work with agencies to make efficient and compliant use of federal grant programs helping citizens rebuild. We also help perform quality control and financial forensic assessments to help spend disaster recovery funds efficiently while preventing fraud, waste, and abuse.

We work with our clients to utilize data analytic and visualization tools that sharpen risk and vulnerability assessments and direct investments to communities that are in extreme need.

Effective disaster management strengthens the bonds of trust with your stakeholders. In advising government leaders to operate more effectively, we help reinforce those bonds for the long term.


KPMG stands out for the multidisciplinary approaches we weave together with jurisdictions to create self-sustaining solutions. We help:

  • Help enable jurisdictions to effectively utilize post-disaster recovery grant programs, including funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) and other sources
  • Help jurisdictions operate more effectively to improve emergency preparedness and community resilience
  • Help design and help implement operational resiliency and continuity of operations plans for jurisdictions to maintain critical functions after disasters
  • Advise on public-private financing and asset management strategies to increase the resilience of public infrastructure, ports, and power, water and electric utilities
  • Implement versatile data analytic and visualization tools that can sharpen risk and vulnerability assessments
  • Assist in directing investments to communities in extreme need
  • Perform industry-leading quality control and financial forensic techniques to help verify disaster recovery funds are spent efficiently, while protecting from fraud and abuse.
