In what was originally conceptualized as an assessment of government efficiency and workforce needs of Niagara County government, CGR worked with County officials to broaden the scope of the project to a strategic reassessment of the purposes and functions of County government.

In a March 2000 report, CGR recommended that County government as a whole rethink how it functions and restructure itself in various ways – including cross-system streamlining, collaboration, and service integration – to best address a variety of changing circumstances impacting the County and its resources. In a follow-up phase, at the invitation of the County Legislature, CGR also led the Legislature and County department heads in a strategic planning process which resulted in the adoption by the Legislature of a prioritized work plan and timeline for addressing the remaining recommendations in the CGR report.
