Public Administration, Finance, & Grant Management
Our team develops and executes cost-effective public policy initiatives and services that ensure the financial stability, efficiency, and effectiveness of state and local government.
Human Resources Support Services
CSS offers human resources consulting services that are focused on improving productivity and resolving organizational challenges. An administration can benefit from consistent reviews of administrative policies and structures and improve productivity by clarifying current and future goals.
Public Relations and Community Engagement
Our approach focuses on integration and coordination across sectors — identifying target audiences, tailoring messaging, recruiting the right mix of opinion stakeholders to add validation and messaging support, utilizing the most influential communication channels, and ultimately, making positive change.
Graphic & Website Design Services
Making a good first impression is vital to communicating your objectives and establishing relationships with your community. Think about how your brand will encompass your organization – from your logo, your website, your social media pages, and most importantly your customer’s experience.
Project Management & Oversight
Together, our professional staff members evaluate all aspects of the project to ensure technical capacity and capability prior to implementation. They also monitor projects to determine whether they are progressing on time, within budget, and in accordance with the approved scope of work outlined in the plans and specifications.
Emergency Management & Public Safety
With over 20 years of experience in emergency management and public safety, our team understands the complex and evolving nature of public safety issues. We work side-by-side with our clients to accelerate their emergency management and public safety services.
Public Works & Infrastructure Operations
Over the years it has become increasingly complex to manage public infrastructure and having the right people in your corner with the knowledge, understanding and experience will make all the difference in the world.
Public Management and Support Services
Our talented team of experts can offer agencies and organizations on-site support services in their time of need in several areas of operations to allow the continuity of services at the highest level.
What Community Leaders Have to Say About Working with CSS
We brought Capital Strategic Solutions into our downtown project to ensure that two-way communication with all stakeholders – businesses, residents, and citizens alike – would be seamless. They have surpassed our expectations and created a social media presence for us that we did not anticipate. When construction went into hibernation for the winter, we pivoted. We used that media presence to highlight local business people – not their businesses, per se, but the people and their individual, special stories. The community response has been overwhelming. CSS has done an excellent job of capturing and disseminating these stories.
