Program Overview

GIS Associates has provided GIS coordination, project management, and staff augmentation (both on and off-site) for many clients over the years. Some of these contracts are on-going annual renewals, as our clients value the high level of support we provide, and the fact that we pay careful attention to meeting the unique needs of each organization.

For staff augmentation projects, our staff is integrated with the client’s staff to enable the application of the best combination of skills to accomplish each task. Our project management tools promote a clear understanding of roles and responsibilities across all parties, which increases efficiency and greatly reduces the likelihood of gaps in task assignments or any duplcation of effort. This approach has increased productivity, skill level, and morale due to the fact that staff knows exactly what to do, how to do it, and who to go to if there are any problems.

For more information regarding GIS coordination or staff augmentation, please contact us.
