Shared Services Research Briefs

GOPC’s findings suggest that there are significant savings and service improvements available to local and state agencies that purchase and maintain fleet equipment, chart routes for service provision, do bulk purchasing, or operate multiple physical locations.

GOPC developed these reports in coordination with the Center for Community Solutions as part of a larger research package that highlights opportunities at the state and local levels to maximize existing resources for enhanced service delivery and cost savings to taxpayers.  GOPC thanks Joe Campbell, PhD for his assistance in developing these research briefs.
