Introduction and Purpose
Having spent the better part of the last decade working in the public and non-profit sectors, we understand the ever-present pressure of unfunded mandates from the state and federal government, endless list of hoops to jump through from grant-making organizations and the (frequently) unrealistic expectations of local stakeholders.
Our purpose is to help you establish the capacity to address pressing matters without losing focus on the day-to-day operations of your organization. We spend a lot of time chasing funding and putting out “fires.” We function in an industry of action and reaction, not planning and execution, though this is slowly changing. Projects for organizations of diverse sizes and capacities are successful only because of proactivity, investment in useful technology and thoughtful long-term planning. These are the basic “best practices” of the public service industry which add value to the way we fulfill our missions and visions as organizations.
We have identified a number of items that organizations tend to find themselves faced with but are oftentimes unable to adequately address due to staffing and funding limitations. These are the pain points that we can help you with:
Feasibility Studies/Public Policy Analysis
Federal & State Grant Acquisition and Management
Fiscal Distress Early Intervention- CVTRS, Financial Analysis, Budget Forecasting
Unfunded Liability Analysis- PA 202 Reporting/Action Planning
Position Description and Salary Studies
If you need assistance in addressing any of these matters, let's work together to put you on a path to being more effective, efficient, and sustainable.
