Now, here is the final post of Frequently Asked Questions related to incentive programs:
What are the benefits of working with a consultant, rather than doing it myself?
Although managing your project and proving to the State that you meet the scheduled requirements are not difficult, it is time consuming and requires knowledge of the incentive program. As such, I believe the greatest benefit of working with a consultant is you’ll have the benefit of an expert to manage your project and report your incentive commitments to the State. Ultimately, this frees up your team’s time to focus on the real reason why you are in business – to provide excellent client service and to increase your business’ revenue.
If you choose a consultant to provide full compliance services, the consultant acts as your Compliance Department. As a result, you won’t have to worry about your incentive commitments, because someone else if monitoring those commitments on your behalf. If you choose to manage your project on your own, but you feel you need some quality control to ensure that your analysis and annual reports are appropriate and accurate, you may work with a consultant to provide an oversight review. This process gives you peace of mind, knowing that your project’s reporting package will be reviewed and approved in a timely manner. Another option, if you choose to manage your project on your own would be to have your team participate in a training program to ensure that they have the tools needed to successfully manage and report your project commitments. Again the benefit is the peace of mind, knowing that your project is in good hands.
