The City of East Providence partners with OpenGov to power effectiveness and accountability through budgeting, performance, and communications technology.
EAST PROVIDENCE, RI and REDWOOD CITY, CA – April 30, 2019 – Today, the City of East Providence announced that it is partnering with OpenGov—the leader in budgeting and performance technology for government—to further increase its effectiveness and accountability.
“Since day one, it’s been my goal to improve the city’s operations and accountability, while enabling performance-driven government in East Providence,” Mayor Roberto L. DaSilva said. “My staff evaluated our options and various vendors including our ERP, ClearGov, and Questica.
“To us, it was clear OpenGov was the most robust solution on the market. OpenGov’s ability to provide budgeting, performance, reporting, and transparency capabilities in an easy-to-use platform is second to none.”
The OpenGov Cloud™ is the only integrated solution for budgeting, performance, communications, and reporting. East Providence is using OpenGov to streamline its budget process, improve collaboration across departments, track progress against its goals, and make more informed decisions. Governments using OpenGov spend on average 50 percent less time building their budgets, 80 percent less time developing reports, and free up around 1 percent of their budgets that can be reallocated to other vital public services.
“We are honored to partner with Mayor DaSilva and the City of East Providence, shared OpenGov CEO, Zac Bookman. “As the first Mayor of East Providence, Mayor DaSilva has taken the lead in making his city more effective and accountable.
“East Providence now has the workflows and insights it needs to better manage the budget, drive performance, and communicate initiatives and outcomes to the community.”
East Providence joins more than 2,000 city, county and state governments, special districts, and schools that are partnering with OpenGov. Darien, Conn., Richmond, Va., Lincoln, Neb., and Newport, R.I., for example, all recently began using OpenGov to build and manage their budgets, track performance, develop strategic plans, and communicate strong narratives about projects, initiatives, and plans.
