Regional Government Services Authority (RGS) is a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) founded in 2001 and began serving the needs of cities, counties, special districts, joint powers authorities, and other governmental entities in 2002. RGS works exclusively for the benefit of public agencies, providing a ready source of support and consulting services to meet the needs of its partner agencies in a broad range of disciplines and to help local governments meet three challenges:
Increasing demands (and costs) for services, and
Loss of experienced staff.
Local government leaders knew that these challenges were likely to continue, so agencies would have to work together – uniting not only their voices but their resources to advocate and become more efficient. The idea behind the creation of RGS was to form an agency that would help local governments share expertise and improve efficiencies. This was an emerging need. It did not require that each agency hire full-time staff. With the creation of this JPA, agencies could, in effect, share expertise through a third-party.
