Granicus has acquired GovQA for an undisclosed sum as part of efforts to help government agency clients manage requests for public records and expand the capabilities of its Civic Engagement Platform designed to provide unified digital experiences to citizens.
Woodridge, Illinois-based GovQA provides cloud-based automated workflow software meant to help government agency clients manage and process public records and information requests, Granicus said Thursday.
GovQA has helped nearly 800 government agency customers complete millions of public record requests using its compliance automation platform.
“GovQA is an important and powerful addition to the Granicus platform that amplifies our customers’ ability to support healthy communities through deeper transparency, engagement and connection, while ensuring they remain compliant with their state’s unique regulations,” said Granicus CEO Mark Hynes.
Shea & Co. served as GovQ’s exclusive financial adviser in the transaction.
