The landscape of local government
Counties and municipalities are complex organizations with dozens of diverse lines of business. There are always ongoing enterprise and departmental projects in local government and each of these projects presents its own set of challenges. Departmental projects like 311 systems, zoning and code enforcement, new financial systems, infrastructure upgrades, cybersecurity, public and mental health projects all require careful thought if they are going to produce measurable results. There are many questions to answer. Is your tech up to date? Do you have the right people in place? Are there issues with regulatory compliance? What's the TCO and ROI? How do you control costs while maintaining high-quality services?
How we can help
We can help answer these questions and many others. We understand the need for local governments to provide high-quality, financially sustainable services.
We use our expertise to:
- Assess and evaluate business processes and resolve business process challenges.
- Assist with procurement of enterprise and departmental software.
- Analyze information security policies and develop comprehensive cybersecurity plans.
- Risk assessment and management.
- Outsourcing and service level agreements
- Provide project management oversight for complex projects.
- Assist with regulatory compliance issues.
- Evaluate, assess and re-engineer services.
- IT assessment and reorganization.
We have over 25 years of experience working with local governments and we work with legislatures, county commissioners, municipal councils, and utility authorities to ensure departmental and executive goals are met. We have worked with county recorders, public and mental health directors, IT departments, county and city attorneys, voter registration, HR departments, finance and accounting, social services, probation, law enforcement, public works, facilities, and many others to help organizations achieve their business objectives.
We work anywhere in the continental United States and will gladly come on site to work on your project. However, communication tools for online meetings enable us to often complete projects remotely saving a great deal of money. You can get the same result with a much lower cost.
