City of Sammamish
The City of Sammamish is a fast-growing suburban city in Washington state with ~70,000 resident and is located in the Seattle metropolitan area. The City was incorporated in 1999 and is home to many of the people that work in Pacific Northwest technology centers. In response to their rapid growth and the demands of their residents, the City realized that they needed to transform their technology services and capabilities and had an emerging vision to build a “digital city hall”.
Kennedy Scope of Work
We provided a senior organizational consultant to lead an effort to assess existing technologies and technology management capabilities and readiness, research city services best practices and trends, develop a technology strategy/vision, identify gaps, and provide a roadmap to implement the new vision. As part of this engagement, we completed a 360o assessment that included interviews with city managers, key staff, and stakeholders. We then presented the findings to the City Council for consideration. We partnered with Seitel Systems to complete an IT systems, infrastructure, and security assessment and integrated their findings and recommendations into the final deliverables.
