JAT performed a full spectrum of infrastructure operational services for the newly founded City of Dunwoody as part of an innovative service delivery approach. JAT’s highly trained staff played an integral role in getting the municipality up and running in the exceptionally short time frame of a few months. With JAT’s turnkey expertise and assistance, the city minimized its operating and overhead costs while providing a high level of service to their citizens.
JAT assisted in the development and initial running of all operations for the city departments, including identification of record keeping software; issuing RFPs for equipment, furniture, and supplies; logistics coordination for leases; and set up of office space and Police Department facilities. The firm also helped in the formation of the police force, including equipment acquisition and the establishment of payroll and benefits. Dunwoody’s new Police Department was up and running in four months, a first in U.S. history. JAT helped establish the city’s municipal court system so that it could begin operations without delay. JAT created the city’s communication center to efficiently direct calls to proper departments and serve all Dunwoody citizens.
JAT provided essential support to the city in financial, purchasing, administrative, and human resources services. Acting as extended city staff, JAT professionals served as the Assistant Finance Director, Purchasing/Risk Manager, Human Resources Manager, Assistant to the City Clerk, Receptionist, and support personnel. JAT was responsible for the city’s accounting, purchasing, and revenue collection operations. JAT assisted with annual budgeting and budgeting maintenance, detailed financial forecasts and analyses, and determining/procuring all necessary insurance. JAT also provided support for all City Council operations (six City Council members and the City Manager), including coordination of City Council meetings and recording/administration of meeting minutes and resolutions.
JAT continues to provide annual support for audit preparation and the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), which is a set of financial statements that complies with accounting requirements promulgated by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB).
