Now is the time for government entities to transform society through innovative programs and processes that have meaningful impact on all of our lives. From critical infrastructure to the environment, economic development, sustainability and equitable solutions to long-term concerns and disaster recovery programs, this is a once in a generation opportunity to make a sustainable difference.
In these high visibility environments, executing large-scale change requires a fresh approach and effective ways to address risk, solve problems and report results. Not only does the federal government demand better reporting, citizens want more communication, transparency and accountability. They want to know how, when and where their tax dollars are being put to work for them. Weaver’s Government Consulting Services team has the skills and experience needed to assist clients in addressing multiple and often competing needs.
Meeting public entities where they are:
Whether you need assistance navigating through the funding opportunities from major, one-time new investments – such as the $550 billion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act – or from ongoing revenue sources, need IT strategy and solutions or business process improvement around your operating structure, Weaver ushers in change for public entities, no matter in what area or at what stage of transformation we meet them, throughout these four core organizational functions:
At Weaver, we understand the pressures government entities face, from both sides.
When efficiency, transparency, and accountability matter, Weaver’s Government Consulting Services (GCS) team delivers the results you need.
Weaver’s long history of serving state and local governments with distinction paved the way for our GCS team to emerge, specifically to align our work with public entity clients to maximize benefits for their constituents.
It’s what we’ve done for 70+ years. It’s what we do, today, with newly improved tools, technologies, and processes to support our clients to effectively manage risk, solve problems and report results to constituents.
Strategic planning is to public entities what geographic coordinates are to navigators. Without it, you’d get lost in the vision phase while falling short in delivering results for your citizens. Weaver’s GCS team formulates, measures, and reorients vision to actionable strategy, empowering governments to maximize benefits for their constituents and employees alike. With impactful strategic planning – supported by Weaver’s consulting – governments operate more efficiently and put taxpayer dollars to their best use. We have the opportunity now, with these once in a lifetime funding opportunities, to truly change lives.

The importance of public sector entities in providing critical services to citizens regardless of income or status cannot be overstated. COVID-19 taught us this and equally valuable lessons as it laid bare where operations fell short. At the base of providing safe communities, health care, housing, education, transportation, infrastructure, disaster recovery, and law enforcement – among so many other crucial services – is operations. It’s the backbone of a locality, a state, and our nation. Weaver meets each client where it is to review and to improve the following areas of operations, among others:
- Grant funding management
- Infrastructure planning
- Business process improvement, reengineering and operating models
- Shared and managed services
- Risk management
- Change management
It’s no secret that some state and local governments are further along the technology maturation lifecycle than others. While one municipality might be laboring on disconnected, unlinked databases from the 1990s, others have streamlined their processes in the cloud. Weaver meets you where you are – and we understand each stage of maturation – to improve the functionality of what you’ve got while recommending ways to develop smart technology solutions that support transparency, security, reporting, seamless maintenance and constant uptime:
- Project management
- Independent verification and validation
- Data architecture
- Cloud strategies
From the rise of hybrid remote working and the need to support different work and scheduling preferences, Weaver assists its public sector clients optimize their human capital structure to maximize benefits for their people, both inside their organizations and in the communities they serve. As fewer resources require governments to do more with less, Weaver’s GCS team enables governments that must operate differently – and leaner – to be smarter in their approach to human capital.

- Talent management and DEIB fulfillment
- Change management communications
- Organizational design and assessment
