ClearGov Named Preferred Budgeting Solution for the Utah Association of Counties

Utah Association of Counties

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

The Utah Association of Counties (UAC) is a voluntary, statewide organization whose members are the 29 counties of Utah. The counties, through their elected officials, direct UAC activities in providing services to county officials. UAC was formed in 1924 to help counties provide effective county government to the people of Utah. The private, non-profit organization offers a broad range of management, training, and intergovernmental relations services to counties, including commissioners and other elected officials (affiliates). UAC’s purpose is to improve the operation of Utah’s county governments and thereby improve the quality of services which counties provide to their residents.

The UAC supports counties in various ways, including researching and recommending solutions that improve efficiency. ClearGov provides cloud-based software solutions to help counties save money and improve efficiency. The company’s solutions include a suite of budgeting tools and a platform for transparency and citizen engagement. Additional solutions automate workflows, such as licensing and permitting, and the company’s newest strategic planning software will help counties create, execute, and track action plans.

The National Association of Counties (NACo) Financial Services Corporation has already chosen ClearGov as their go-to budgeting solution through an exclusive partnership that began in January 2022. Utah’s counties will benefit from this new partnership with UAC, providing them with more awareness and educational opportunities to modernize their budgeting process.

Five Utah counties are already ClearGov customers, and several more are in active discussions.

“UAC has partnered with ClearGov to provide its solutions to counties across the state. We anticipate that the partnership will result in significant cost savings for counties and improvements in efficiency and transparency. ClearGov’s tools also offer a simple and effective way to engage constituents and keep the community apprised of a county’s financial health,” said Brady Grace, Chief Executive Officer for UAC.

“ClearGov’s mission is to help counties budget better with the help of affordable, easy-to-use software solutions that facilitate effective collaboration and build public trust through total transparency. The partnership between UAC and ClearGov is a model for how technology can be used to improve government efficiency and save taxpayers money,” said Bryan Burdick, President and Co-founder of ClearGov.
