When it is time for a municipality, school district, or small business to think about consolidations the Civic Research Alliance can help you “think it through.” We do not make recommendations; we provide the research, analysis, and resulting viable options that allow you to make decisions with the highest degree of confidence.
Opportunities for shared services to achieve cost savings/avoidance or improvement/maintenance of services provided to customers or taxpayers. Further, the range of possible arrangements is so broad that all municipalities, school districts, small business, or organizations will find ways to cooperate. We will work with you to understand the process, the challenges, and the possible rewards. Having research and evidence in hand is vital to a successful program.
Other general areas of support for your organization include: preparation or review of proposals, program evaluations, support for existing committees/task forces, or support of ongoing projects working in tandem with your professionals.
