Our management experience in economic development reinforces the importance of sound tax and incentive policy for investment promotion. Our President developed the Quality Jobs Programs in Oklahoma and Louisiana in the 1990’s and led the statewide study that reorganized the incentive programs in Missouri in 2006.
Our observation is that many communities lack the ability to match incentives to target industry needs and therefore waste public resources in their incentive programs. Our past work, in addition to state incentive reviews and recommendations, also includes assignments to develop incentive evaluation tools and standards for community economic development programs.
