Projects pose a significant risk to local governments, including impact on capital and operating budgets, human resource skills and public perception of project success. UMG offers a range of project management support services that can range from a complete capability assessment of a municipality's project management skills and processes to basic introductory presentations to Mayors, Councils, and executive staff on project management concepts, project organizational structures and normal project plan components.

UMG expertise is responsive to any local government situation regardless of its size and can recommend solutions that bring about immediate and long-term improvements in project delivery capabilities. Immediate improvement is usually obtained through practical project management training based on a logical set of steps framed within a local government case setting. Longer-term improvements may include creating documented project standards and processes, assisting with the establishment of project management office, and the introduction of technology that will enhance the oversight of project performance.
