Watch Your Assets! How to Monetize Most Effectively
In the next decade, a growing number of state and local governments, colleges and universities, airports, transit systems, and water and sewer authorities are likely to explore asset monetization. State and local governments own infrastructure properties of significant value and, despite a 10-year economic expansion, some remain fiscally pressured and unable to properly maintain their properties. The scale of today’s infrastructure decay, the declining fiscal health of the U.S. public sector, and a growing appetite from large institutional investors (private sector) for infrastructure properties make asset sales or leases more likely than in the past. Parking assets (garages, decks, on-street operations) are often eyed by political administrations as a possible cash cow for their pet projects. Now, we see these assets used to fund much-needed infrastructure and technology upgrades.

Municipal Procurement: Repeating Mistakes on Purpose
Are your RFPs for technology products finding the best products for your operation at the best price? RFPs aim to introduce a level playing field for vendors and reduce any potential for favoritism, and garner the best prices. But it doesn’t always work that way; cities can achieve better outcomes by changing the way they buy software. Refocusing RFPs on the operation’s unique needs instead of product specs can bring much more effective results, but it’s a different way of thinking than the traditional. Join us and learn how to use the RFP process more effectively to get the products you want at the best possible price.

Dashboards! Science-Based Decision Making
For several years we’ve been given the gift of Big Data, available now as a result of connected systems and the internet of things. While we often have access to far more data that can help us make those decisions, it is important to understand what data is actually necessary and what is noise. The skill with which we analyze the data can make the difference between a good and bad outcome. One of the simplest methods in science-based decision making is understanding trends through visualizations at a high level. By monitoring performance on a daily basis using a real-time dashboard or simple graphic depictions of trends, you will know if it is necessary to access more data to make a business decision.
