Maximize the impact of public assistance.
HORNE builds its programs with successful outcomes in mind and then develops the plans, systems and workflow processes to match the program’s unique requirements.
We collaborate to establish procedures using best practices from similar programs. Together we establish schedules, financial budgets, key performance metrics, documented workflows and program controls to meet your objectives.
Our goal is to guide you through regulatory compliance issues and provide transparent progress reporting until a successful closeout is complete.
HORNE works with clients to develop a plan quickly to make progress. This takes high-level focus — outlining items like end goals, rough schedules and major milestones, general budgets, risks and areas of concern, and identification of additional stakeholders, as well as policies, procedures and guidebooks.
Programs have a defined beginning and end, making the schedule one of the most important items to ensure success.
We work closely with clients to make sure we have a solid grasp of their needs and goals, as well as local issues and regulations. HORNE’s management team ensures that all stakeholders’ concerns are addressed when developing schedules.
HORNE has a long and successful history of performing programmatic risk assessments. Our team assesses foreseeable program risks, assigns industry performance benchmarks and determines the frequency and breadth of internal program monitoring. We update the risk assessment on a client-scheduled basis and provide program performance comparisons to the industry benchmarks assigned.
