New Cross-Jurisdiction Collaboration Models for State, Regional and Local Governments
State, regional and local governments are just beginning to realize the full impact of the Great Recession, and many of these entities are taking steps to address their fiscal and social constraints with creative solutions. Forward-looking jurisdictions are rethinking issues such as health care reform, transportation and air quality, and are saving on costs by providing services at scale.
State, regional and local governments are pooling their funds and resources to combat the effects of the recession. Combining forces and spreading the wealth has benefitted colleges and universities, police departments and even entire cities.
At Accenture we call this innovative approach cross-jurisdiction collaboration. Cross-jurisdiction collaboration is when two or more organizations work together across traditional boundaries to provide services while concurrently reducing costs and improving effectiveness. Among the many examples of this approach are the use of shared services for back-office business systems, and the consolidation of technology infrastructure across departments and agencies.
Cross-jurisdiction collaboration is not just about doing more with less—it’s about doing better with less.
