Shared Services

Local governments have achieved cost savings; maximized fiscal and operational efficiencies; improved facility resources and increased accountability by sharing services with a neighboring municipality, the local school district or county government. High service levels and increased accountability are additional advantages. The concept of shared services is a simple one: cost savings are achieved through economies of scale.

New Jersey has the most local governments per square mile of any state, leading to duplication of services and the loss of opportunities to achieve economies of scale. In order to address this issue, Assembly Speaker Joe Roberts has championed a plan he calls CORE Reform. His plan calls for:
  • Clearing Hurdles to Shared Services
  • Overriding Waste in Schools
  • Reining in Pension Abuses
  • Empowering Citizens
     
A joint legislative committee on Government Consolidation and Shared Services has met throughout the summer of 2006 to promote service sharing at all levels of government.

Camden County wholeheartedly supports former Assembly Speaker Roberts’ efforts. To this end, the Division of Shared Services was formed in July 2006 to serve you and your municipality. The office acts as a liaison between the municipalities, county and state government. It will provide technical assistance and facilitate discussions between government units interested in sharing similar services. The office serves municipalities, school districts and fire districts.
 
Freeholder Ian K. Leonard serves as Liaison to the Division of Shared Services.
Gary Passanante serves as Director.
