The Balancing Act | How to invest in critical technology while managing tight budget constraints | Dec. 10, 2020 at 2 PM ET

State and local governments are now faced with the unique challenge of having to modernize their operations to support a virtual service delivery model while working within tight budgetary constraints caused by COVID-19.
As if that’s not enough to deal with, there is also a lot of uncertainty around what the future holds — what will budgets and budget cycles look like? Will service delivery remain virtual or return to in-person? If we do return to an in-person model, how can we ensure that we do so safely? How do we future-proof operations from a ‘second wave’? The list goes on…
While the CARES Act has certainly provided relief to state and local governments, it hasn’t returned us to normalcy. Government leaders remain in a position that requires them to prioritize the projects that enable virtual service delivery, community safety, and business continuity.
