Client:
Los Angeles County, CA
Project:
Scope of work: An Independent Review of the Metro Transit Security Public Safety Department Feasibility Study. Citygate will conduct a comprehensive and objective analysis of the cost estimates used in a prior study for LACMTA to establish its own police service, ensure the estimates are consistent with industry standards and benchmarks, and identify any discrepancies or inefficiencies in the current cost estimates and level of service model. Citygate’s Work Plan will include review of the prior study’s cost documentation and methodologies; interviews with key study and Metro personnel involved in the cost estimation process; specific review of written concerns raised by Law Enforcement stakeholders; a summary of key findings regarding cost estimate accuracy, listing identified discrepancies; benchmarking of the first study’s cost estimates against industry standards, California police regulations, and best practices; and a summary of key findings regarding cost estimate accuracy, listing identified discrepancies.
Client:
City of Eden Prairie, MN
Project:
Scope of work: A thorough review and analysis of service and staffing options for the Eden Prairie Fire Department. Citygate’s analysis will determine whether there are more effective, efficient, and improved deployment models for service delivery—consistent with state of Minnesota and national best practices—and will include a review and recommendation for fire service coverage for the City. As part of this thorough review, and in developing a Master Plan to guide the City going forward, Citygate will detail the pros and cons of each SOC model, the pros and cons of each staffing model identified, provide a detailed cost analysis of each SOC and staffing model identified, and will provide options for funding the cost of each model presented. Citygate will address the specific context and challenges that fire departments in Minnesota and much of the country face as a result of the changing fire, EMS, and demographic fact patterns, and will explore the potential staffing model changes required as a result of these changes.
