Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice Simplifies Processes with OpenGov

When manual budgeting and planning processes at the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) became too cumbersome, agency leaders launched a partnership with OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud software for the public sector.

The DJJ’s 3,500 employees work from 26 facilities and 98 court services offices to supervise, detain, and oversee treatment of youth referred from juvenile courts. DJJ staff managed more than $35 million of employee benefits manually with Excel and struggled with day-to-day budget management. In the end, the Agency chose OpenGov Budgeting & Planning to modernize all its financial processes.

The Agency will reap many benefits thanks to its partnership with OpenGov:

  • The finance team will use a single, online solution for budget development, forecasting, and analysis. 
  • The team will be able to understand the budget’s performance, add context to budget outcomes, and share insights across the Agency and with the public.
  • Thanks to a powerful reporting platform, staff now have a Federal reporting audit trail.
  • Staff can provide a streamlined, one-page reporting snapshot to its Board, thereby enhancing and simplifying communication.

The Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice joins more than 1,100 public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
