With the reporting of abatement costs per GASB 77, audit and report benefits to provide a balanced accounting of tax incentives.

Economic multipliers are an outcome to be managed. Go beyond the multiplier to see opportunity and act.
We support your work and governance processes, from planning to managing, measuring, and auditing.
Our smart growth app puts economic life cycle impacts in a multi-criteria decision framework. Use rankings of economic development alternatives to support decision-making, or work with your planners to meld the economic performance table into a comprehensive sustainable planning analysis.
We trace production in a round-by-round manner back through the supply chain and forward through the spending of income, so you get an understanding of where connections weaken between supply and demand in your local economy, and which connections merit management, measurement and auditing.
Get a workbook packed with industry, workforce, earnings, and energy data and charts that you can easily format. Simply enter your economic development scenario and we account for all connections over the production and income life cycles to produce pro forma impact budgets.
With sustainability becoming a larger component of planning, we developed state-specific energy parameters to estimate energy fuel use and associated emissions for your economic development projects.
Our pro forma impact budgets use an upper limit of local expansion capacities or a less aggressive local supply assumption. You choose, then challenge yourself to hit these performance targets. Economic multipliers are an outcome to be managed.
Governance includes measuring actual results against pro forma targets, and auditing of these results. This governance process provides not only public accountability, but performance improvement within your economic development agency.
