Chicago – February 15, 2023 – Relativity and Deloitte today announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has deployed Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) authorized SaaS platform, RelativityOne Government, as its cloud solution for Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
Relativity, a global legal technology company, with the support of Deloitte, a market-leading provider of litigation support and e-discovery services, helped facilitate the agency’s migration to RelativityOne Government. This move to RelativityOne Government provides the EPA with the security, flexibility and extensibility of the cloud-based data discovery product powered by AI.
“Our advanced AI capabilities empower teams at the EPA to spend less time combing through mountains of data and more time collaborating and gleaning insights from analytics,” said Doug Cowan, Managing Director, Government Sales at Relativity. “The EPA is able to use the information to guide courses of action for their litigation matters or FOIA requests, which is additive to the litigation and e-discovery matters in which they were already leveraging RelativityOne Government. We look forward to seeing what the EPA will accomplish with a platform built exclusively for the cloud, and hope that it encourages other U.S. government agencies that are contemplating the use of SaaS solutions for their e-discovery work.”
The EPA processes thousands of FOIA requests per year. The intuitive RelativityOne Government solution provides the EPA with the flexibility and speed to process this large volume of FOIA requests, and handle litigation and investigations of varying sizes securely and accurately. The solution creates a consistent and repeatable approach which allows for lower costs, reduced risks and an increased efficiency in the agency’s processes.
“Deloitte’s experience supporting one of the first agencies to move to RelativityOne Government adds to the extensive and varied history Deloitte has in helping clients leverage innovative technology to achieve their goals,” said Chris Knox, Advisory Managing Director, Deloitte Transactions and Business Analytics LLP and leader of Deloitte’s Government and Public Sector Discovery practice. He added, “our extensive knowledge in shaping, planning and driving the migration to the cloud and Relativity’s commitment to building the secure and scalable platform for the public sector, were key factors in the EPA’s successful deployment.”
RelativityOne Government enables the EPA to respond to government matters of increasing complexity, demand, unpredictability and sensitivity. Data-driven insights and related decision-making in the public sector has grown exponentially, and RelativityOne Government helps agencies more securely and efficiently identify relevant documents, personally identifiable information and privileged data.
