Regional Government Services Authority (RGS) was formed in 2001, by a city and a regional planning and services agency to help local governments meet three challenges: decreasing revenues, 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 which would help local governments share expertise and improve efficiencies. A need was emerging for some way to help agencies get the expertise and experience needed, without each agency having to hire full-time staff when the need might be less than full-time. Agencies could, in effect, share expertise through a third-party.
Today, RGS is governed by several member agencies, all with the common goal expressed in the JPA’s mission statement: To provide quality, innovative, cost-effective services exclusively to public agencies. RGS developed a highly flexible platform of administrative support, benefit plans and programs that could serve the diverse nee...ds of cities, special districts, counties and other joint powers authorities. Regional Government Services Authority was formed under Section 6500, for the purpose of providing local governments with administrative, staffing and advisory services. RGS has now served over 200 cities, special districts, joint powers authorities and other local governments and non-profits that support local governments.
