ACS Pre-Consolidation Services

PROGRAM GOAL

The goal of ACS Pre-Consolidation Services is to provide public safety communications managers and their executive leadership considering consolidation with a review, evaluation and analysis of their current operations and advice on the issues surrounding effective and efficient consolidation operations options.

The ACS team is comprised of experienced public safety communications officials who have successfully managed consolidations. The team will review crucial considerations to address and elements to include in requests for proposals, while providing recommendations focused on questions and issues that may arise as part of a community's proposed consolidation process. A detailed presentation that covers eight topic areas will be conducted (see scope of work).

PROFESSIONAL REVIEW

ACS provides a "peer-to-peer" review leading to some initial resource recommendations. The insights from the review are designed to assist in the decision process prior to potential consolidation and will provide insights for obtaining professional consultant services focusing on consolidation.

SCOPE OF WORK

Once a review request is received, ACS will work with the agency to refine and delineate the parameters of the review effort and create an agency-specific scope of work. Examples of areas to be included in a scope of work include, but are not limited to, the following:

Policies and Procedures

Operations

Facilities

Recruitment and Hiring

Training Program

Radio System/Frequency Management
