ESCI has been awarded the following Minnesota Shared Services Projects…

Dundas/Northfield, Minnesota

Ramsay County, Minnesota

Columbia Heights, Minnesota 

The  initial phases regarding the above studies focus on a baseline assessment of the current organizational conditions and service performance of each agency and the area as a whole. ESCI will conduct an organizational evaluation of the departments to assess the agencies’ operations in comparison to industry standards and best practices. This also creates a benchmark for future service delivery measurement. ESCI will use the completed evaluation of each agency to identify opportunities and feasibility for cooperative efforts. Through this comparison we will identify areas of duplication that can be reduced through consolidation efforts, as well as potential service improvements that can be accomplished.   

Lorretto/Hamel, Minnesota – Shared Services Implementation Facilitation: ESCI will gather information and data to be used to identify needs and opportunities as the agencies move through implementation of cooperative efforts. A refined implementation plan that the agencies can use will be created along with the development of a comprehensive set of Standard Operating Guidelines/Procedures.
