International City/County Management Association Announces Strategic Partnership with Expense Reduction Analysts, Inc.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ICMA, the International City/County Management Association, welcomes Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA), a leading global advisory firm and cost-reduction consultancy, as an ICMA Strategic Partner.

With local governments operating under burdensome fiscal constraints, cost-reduction strategies are of utmost importance. ICMA's partnership with ERA is designed to benefit local government managers as they strive to meet the needs of their communities in times of financial stress.

The ICMA Strategic Partner Program was created in 1996 as an access point for private sector participation in ICMA programs and activities. Through the program, firms are afforded opportunities to assist professional local government managers and their jurisdictions by showcasing leading practice solutions and providing thought leadership.

ERA works with organizations to reduce overhead and administrative expenses through pricing and procurement reviews and contract renegotiation services, and the firm reports an average savings of nearly 20 percent for its clients. Because ERA is compensated on a shared-savings basis, local governments do not incur any upfront fees for ERA services.

According to Philip Gross, ERA Managing Director, "We look forward to bringing our 20 years of expense reduction expertise to local government organizations, including cities and other municipalities, counties, schools and other local government entities, such as water and sewer authorities.  We could find no better partner than the ICMA to help us leverage our expertise for the benefit of our local communities."

"ICMA is excited about the potential value of working with ERA to bring leading practices and valuable services to our members and local governments," adds ICMA Executive Director Robert J. O'Neill, Jr. "With ERA's nearly 700 experts in more than 30 countries, we see this as a "win-win" for jurisdictions everywhere that are struggling to meet the challenges of the current fiscal crisis while thinking creatively about how they allocate precious resources."

About ICMA
