About Us

“Our mission is to be the primary advisor to local, state, and federal government agencies to support their efforts to operate efficiently and effectively for the taxpayers which they serve.”

Founded in 2013, K.L. Scott & Associates LLC (KLS&A) is a management and information technology (IT) consulting firm providing independent analysis and advice for local, state, and federal government agencies. We are a team of senior level consultants with an average of 20 years of professional experience per practitioner.  Our firm provides independent advisory services for organizational performance optimization and cost reduction and avoidance through efficiency gains.  Our objective is to empower our clients with a deep level understanding of their people, processes, technology, and data to make informed fact-based business decisions and/or corrective actions.  KLS&A is a technology agnostic consulting firm which positions us an unbiased and trusted partner. 

Why are We Different?

Every organization will tell you that they are different.  They will tell you that they are faster, cheaper, and maintain the highest quality service.  But are these really differentiating factors?  What makes KLS&A different are a variety of real factors such as our focus on cost reduction and avoidance, organization and process efficiency that is quantifiable, and technology agnostic which enables our firm to provide truly independent and unbiased analysis.

Cost Reduction and Avoidance. Many IT and management consulting agencies concentrate on strategies and services that provide revenue growth for the organization.  Our firm targets cost reduction strategies that will increase the return on taxpayer dollars. 

Process Efficiency. Our practitioners provide process improvement recommendations that are quantifiable.  Our clients will clearly understand that improving process X will provide Y in return by implementing our Lean Six Sigma DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) methodology.  We identify the right process levers that affect the organization, baseline their current state, implement process improvement strategy, and monitor the performance results. 

Technology Agnostic and Independent Analysis.  It is commonplace that many firms resell specific vendor software products as channel partners.  KLS&A maintains its independence as a point of difference from our competitors and will not, now or in the future, enter into any channel partner agreements with software vendors. KLS&A is unbiased towards the use of different technology tools to solve different problems.  There is no “one size fits all” technology to provide client solutions.  In fact, our recommendations are solely based on the results of our analysis and the needs of our clients.  Therefore, we are a trusted partner to provide vendor selection advice.

Performance Management and Strategic Planning.  KLS&A has extensive experience setting organizational vision and helping clients achieve that vision through a thoroughly structured and quantifiable plan.  Our team assists clients in understanding their strategic goals and objectives, developing initiatives to achieve those goals, determining which goals provide the highest value of return, and streamlining those goals into an effective implementation roadmap.   We support our clients by administering strategy work sessions and focus groups to drive goal and objective identification.  Through our effective management process, KLS&A helps clients develop, implement, and monitor successful strategy execution.
