Examples of Projects: 

Tacoma Public Utilities (TPU) SharePoint Training

TPU IT staff met with SPSCC to create custom curriculum for their SharePoint rollout (or implementation), focusing on the features in SharePoint which best served TPU’s needs and emphasizing best practices with this new software tool..  Training was provided on-site and customized to their own SharePoint to successfully train hundreds of TPU staff with relevant, cusomized training.

Labor & Industries(L&I) Technical Solutions Delivery Training Certificate

At L&I’s request, and in consultation with them, we developed a series of nine custom training classes to provide a broad overview of IT concepts for their BA staff. This certificate series seeks to improve communication, collaboration, and understanding between analysts and managers creating requirements and documenting use cases and the IT developers who ultimately create technology solutions.   The classes were a great success, with dozens of L&I staff completing the series and providing positive feedback. 

Washington State Conservation Commission (SCC)

SCC is a small state agency collaborating with 45 conservation districts in the state to conserve natural resources. SCC is charged with distributing and tracking grants for conservation projects throughout the state, among other functions. SPSCC has provided database development services to SCC for over 15 years, starting with a small database to track all district contacts and automate an annual, published directory for the districts. After the successful deployment of the District Directory contract tracking database, SCC asked SPSCC to create a much larger grant tracking and payment processing financial database, to replace many spreadsheets! We spent over a year scoping, designing and building that database. It has been in continuous use for nearly 14 years now, with many new upgrades along the way, and tracks millions of dollars in grant awards and payments. This SCC financial database interfaces with the state’s AFRS payment system to streamline and automate payments to districts and contractors.

What our clients say about us:

Labor and Industries (L&I)

I first connected with the SPSCC consultant program in 1994. I was setting up a career transition program for WA state employees and was looking for expertise. Within a short timeframe they brought me five professional career consultants. Together, we built a highly successful and durable program that assisted many employees during tough times of government downsizing. In 2008, I reached out to SPSCC once again to support an organizational wellness initiative in a large WA state agency. They brought me change managers, program coordinators, writers, graphic designers, instructors, OD consultants, web masters, and web designers. This was a big ask, but SPSCC made it happen once again. - Organizational Wellness Manager
