About the Pittsburgh Government Guidebook
The downloadable PDF reports on this website are the work of the New Orleans-based Thomas Consulting Group, which has managed transitions and advised on organizational and policy issues for a range of cities, including Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Montgomery and Shreveport. Led by Michelle Thomas, a veteran of public- and private-sector leadership positions, the team has advocated on behalf of regional and local governments across America for federal funding to pay for transformative local programs and projects.
The Thomas Consulting Group worked with each of the City’s department directors, along with other key staff, to provide the most accurate information on the status of current operations and strategic initiatives. The Policy and Community Impact Team of The Pittsburgh Foundation assisted in various aspects of the project.
