Who We Help - City and County Government

While we can work with any business or entity that meets our minimum spending thresholds, we do have some ideal client types that we like to work with.

City and county governments are one example. Why is that?

The answer is simple. City and county governments have expenses in many of the categories we help with, and they almost always meet our category spending thresholds. This makes the return on investment of our time and our clients’ time highly valuable in these engagements.

Some of the best areas we are able to help city and county governments are in telecom, uniforms and linen, copiers and printers, and utilities.

Best Cost Reduction Categories for City and County Government


City and county governments have significant telecommunication requirements. There are numerous departments, usually spread across multiple buildings, and large needs for mobile services as well. Even the best-run organization leaves money on the table here.

It’s the IT department’s job to keep the computers running smoothly, but that doesn’t mean they have access to thousands of benchmark data points to know exactly what you should be paying.

Furthermore, our analysts delve into the details by accessing your telecom customer service records to identify errors and overcharges. We know exactly what the vendors charge for each line item and can analyze that across peer data to ensure you are getting the best deal possible and being billed correctly.
