ClearGov Named Preferred Budgeting Solution for the Association of Minnesota Counties

Association of Minnesota Counties

ClearGov, a leader in public sector technology solutions and Budget Cycle Management software, has been recognized as the preferred budgeting solution for the Association of Minnesota Counties

The Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC) is a voluntary, non-partisan statewide organization that has assisted the state’s 87 counties in providing effective county governance to the people of Minnesota since 1909. The association works closely with the legislative and administrative branches of government in seeing that legislation and policies favorable to counties are enacted.AMC  provides legislative advocacy, educational programs, training, research, and communications for its member counties.

Minnesota counties receive support and guidance from the AMC in numerous ways. One of the ways the AMC assists counties is by conducting research and offering recommendations that can enhance efficiency while saving time and money. ClearGov offers a range of solutions that help counties do just that. Among ClearGov’s offerings are a suite of budgeting tools, a transparency and citizen engagement platform, and workflow automation solutions for activities such as licensing and permitting. In addition, ClearGov’s latest strategic planning software can enable counties to create, execute, and track action plans more effectively.

The National Association of Counties (NACo) Financial Services Corporation has already named ClearGov its preferred budgeting solution through an exclusive partnership established in January 2022.  Now, Minnesota counties looking to modernize their budgeting process will have access to the resources and educational opportunities through the partnership with ClearGov .

Three Minnesota counties are already ClearGov customers, and several more are in active discussions.

“AMC has partnered with ClearGov to make its cloud-based budgeting solutions available to counties throughout the state. The partnership is expected to bring about substantial cost reductions for counties, as well as enhanced efficiency and transparency. Additionally, ClearGov’s tools provide a user-friendly and effective means of involving constituents and keeping them informed about their county’s financial data,” said Julie Ring, Executive Director, Association of Minnesota Counties

“Our goal at ClearGov is to provide counties with accessible and user-friendly software solutions that encourage productive teamwork and foster public confidence by offering complete transparency. The partnership between AMC and ClearGov is a shining example of how technology can enhance effectiveness and help counties budget better,” said Bryan Burdick, President and Co-founder of ClearGov.
