comprehesive, independent guidance
The McGrath Consulting Group conducts fiscal reviews in the areas of public safety and human resources. Reviews can include:
- Budget development
- Budget funding
- Personnel costs
- Lease expenses
- Capital equipment
- Apparatus/vehicle replacement plans
- Alternative funding
After conducting an in-depth financial analysis, McGrath prepares suggested budget components based on current industry best practices. This budget can act as a core component of your strategic plan, defining the level of service you wish to provide.
The specification and prioritization of vital services are essential in determining the level of service and the resulting cost of that service. Absent this information, department heads can blindly cut personnel and resources in an attempt to get to a "budget figure" rather than have the ability to cut and reallocate resources based upon priorities.
