Cathedral Oaks Consulting specializes in providing consulting services exclusively and directly to California’s regional agencies including Councils of Government, Regional Transportation Planning Agencies, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, and Transportation Sales Tax Authorities. As former senior-level employees at those agencies, we quickly begin making a difference for the clients that hire us by applying our hands-on, "insider's experience".
Below is a sampling of the services that we provide to our clients.
We assist our clients with everything from procuring project consultants to developing schedules, budgets, grant applications and staff reports, to oversighting work products, to representing them at project team meetings with state and federal partners.
We help our clients set priorities, focus energies and resources, strengthen operations, ensure that policy boards, employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals, and establish consensus around intended outcomes and results.
We develop creative and innovative financing strategies for our clients and we assist them in leveraging funding from state and federal partners.
We are happy to share our experience by training the staff of our clients one-on-one or in workshops and seminars. We also help our clients assess their staffing needs and develop job descriptions and recruitment plans for new positions.
