To help provide for a smooth transition to the new Macon-Bibb County government, a team from the City and County has been meeting weekly to develop and implement a plan to begin consolidating offices where possible. As stated by Brittain Thompson Bray Brown, Inc. to the Transition Task Force, combining offices can be likened to a set of dominoes: one group must move out before another can move in.
The first offices to consolidate will be Human Resources, Finance, Risk Management, and Purchasing. It was important to have HR and Finance moved and settled before January 1 so they could focus on paying bills and managing payroll. Risk Management and Purchasing are two offices closely associated with the other two, so they are included in the first round of moves.
