State and Local
No two governments look exactly alike. Throughout the public sector, budgets and demands vary, which ultimately affects how departments operate on state and local levels.
One common thread among all budgets comes from the fact that IT problems can hinder productivity and financial stability. Strained resources continue to decline as falling sales and income taxes take their toll. According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, average state budget shortfalls are already $38 billion, or 7% of total budgets.
