Back by popular demand, this popular Solutions Track seminar from the 2011 ICMA Annual Conference is now a webconference.

Tight budgets, increasing demand for new tools to enhance productivity, and the pace at which technology evolves place local government IT departments in the spotlight. Information technology is one area that local governments are examining for cost-savings opportunities and service level improvements, yet many leaders may be apprehensive because they lack an understanding of IT and the impact outsourcing will have on their organization. This informative 90-minute ICMA webconference session will provide ideas and solutions to help local government managers develop a comprehensive process to determine if IT outsourcing is right for your situation.

The webconference will also present a case study review of the city of Carrollton, Texas, including how the city evaluated its options and developed a successful outsourcing strategy. The results included a significantly enhanced contract for providing IT services that provides cost savings, flexibility, and transparency to the city’s IT operations.

You and your staff will walk away with:
  • Ideas and solutions to help your local government develop a comprehensive process to determine if IT outsourcing is right for its organization
  • Guidelines for determining the likelihoods of cost savings
  • Considerations for evaluating outsourcing as an opportunity to reshape the IT services being provided to city staff and other constituents
  • A suggested methodology ( “how to”) for outsourcing IT

Examples from city of Carrollton’s analysis and implementation of an IT outsourcing plan.
