Governments are in a constant struggle to accomplish more with less, and information technology (IT) is essential to streamline operations, meet compliance requirements, and provide constituents with better access to services and information. When leveraged effectively, IT increases collaboration among people and agencies, automates manual processes, and provides vital business functionality that lets employees be more productive. Integrated IT systems also deliver greater transparency for governmental operations, which serves to increase public support for new spending and initiatives.
Crowe Horwath LLP understands that technology evolves quickly, so agencies need practical solutions that are cost effective to maintain and implement. Our team of professionals will help you leverage your existing investments in technology or select new technologies when needed. Our collaborative style and strong combination of public policy expertise and deep technical knowledge have helped Crowe build a track record of consistently delivering successful outcomes.
By staying on top of the latest trends, Crowe helps government leaders understand what IT can deliver to their organization so that they can maximize the impact of their technology investment.

Our deep knowledge of IT systems helps Crowe devise governance strategies to safeguard IT and data as well as help provide compliance with federal and state requirements. Crowe offers a broad range of IT solutions, including:
