COLLEGE STATION, TX – K2Share, LLC is happy to announce that Freddie Seals has been appointed as SPARS Product Manager. Before his appointment to this position, Mr. Seals was the K2Share SPARS Project Manager for the state of Texas.
SPARS (State Preparedness Assessment and Reporting Service) provides states and the other Homeland Security State Administrative Agencies (SAAs) with the capability to manage grants and other resources using a turnkey eGMS solution. It is currently operating in the states of Texas, South Carolina, Nebraska, and the National Capital Region, with several additional states actively considering its licensing.
“I appointed Mr. Seals to this important position because he brings the right mix of eGMS and DHS grant expertise to the program,” said Dr. Larry Teverbaugh,” K2Share President and CEO. “Additionally, Mr.Seals’s understanding of DHS grant requirements and local jurisdiction needs make him a natural choice to lead our efforts to assist SAA and UASI organizations with managing the various federal grants used to support preparedness initiatives. Our job is to help these organizations with the administrative burden associated with managing grants so they can focus on equipping, training, and exercising their people to respond to man-made and natural disasters. Mr. Seals is the right man to lead this program.”
Prior to joining K2Share, Mr. Seals was the Project Manager for the homeland security eGMS for the Texas State Administrative Agency. He was also the Program Manager of a college Information Technology department, which was ranked in the top 2% in the state.
“The efficiencies enjoyed by states that utilize K2Share's eGMS software package are well documented,” said Mr. Seals. “The real-time progress tracking that SPARS provides has resulted in improvements in communication and grant processing enabling grant management to focus on readiness and response. SPARS also allows instant access to equipment inventories for improved asset management and resource deployment. In this new position, I will work to bring the advantages of SPARS to other states, territories, and urban areas. Additionally, I intend to expand the benefits of our eGMS beyond DHS grants.”
