State and Local Government Entities

State and local governments are being challenged by a broader range of constituencies to deliver more transparency, efficiency and accountability than ever before. Leaders are under considerable pressure to ensure that government entities function like a business – delivering quality services, implementing efficient processes, and setting new standards that can withstand examination. At the same time, in the face of ever-changing economic and political conditions, state and local governments must function productively and show results, all while focused on achieving a higher mission: to preserve and protect the public interest.
At RSM, we work together with you to address a variety of challenges, including:

  • Reporting and compliance requirements
  • Risk and internal controls
  • Business process re-engineering and operational transformation
  • Technology consulting
