Read the e-book

Helping government agencies solve for:

  • Evolving business needs and IT requirements

    IT expertise for a short time frame for special projects or regulatory requirements.

  • Reducing turnover

    Keeping IT staff committed to an agency’s core mission promotes retention, as well as removing some of their workload.

  • Need for diverse technical expertise

    Digital transformation often requires more skills and training than most government agencies have on staff.

  • Controlling costs

    Hiring full-time IT experts is expensive and time-consuming and can cause critical delays in project timelines.
