Additional Staff Resources
We have developed and carefully maintain a network of highly specialized consultants in various technical areas with whom we can work in the context, and with the benefit, of a long-term working relationship. These people are experienced subject matter experts and we bring them into a project when a particular skillset is required and our client asks for a recommendation.
For example, a rate study may be needed for a potential water revenue-backed financing. A complex multi-faceted energy project may benefit from a third-party review of a contractor’s proposed implementation plans or timeline. Or it may be beneficial to get a neutral look at various options for add-ons to streetlights being converted to LEDs. Actuarial expertise familiar with the CalPERS system may be helpful in some situations when considering the issuance of a Pension Obligation Bond. The list of such specialized technical needs is long, and we generally know exactly where to find the needed skills.
