Projecteering: From Project Concept to Ribbon-Cutting A New Paradigm for Infrastructure Planning & Financing
The COG created and now practices a project planning & development philosophy entitled "Full Cycle Planning, Full Circle Funding".
Full Cycle Planning: Understanding that planning is a 365-day a year process to identify, prioritize, ready, fund, and manage projects. The concept with project planning is to create an implementation plan that identifies timelines, roles, tasks, and lead/support persons that will be responsible to move projects from an "idea" to investment grade "project".
Full Circle Funding: The landscape for project funding is extremely limited and competitive. Our belief is that fully funded projects will need to attract a portfolio of investments from several sources. To complete a project, communities will need to submit applications to a variety of funders and programs.
