As an Editor and Technical Writer, you will work with C!A’s Executive Team, Practice Leads, and consultants to draft and edit reports and presentations, draft and edit scopes of work/sales proposals, draft and edit responses to Request for Proposals (RFP), Request for Qualifications (RFQ), and Request for Information (RFI). Specific duties will include:

Our Firm: C!A®, a member of the Vimo® family, is a consulting firm focused specifically on helping government agencies increase capacity to do more good. For nearly two decades, states, counties and municipalities across the country have turned to C!A to help them fix broken business processes and systems to improve capacity and meet program goals.

Our Impact: Using a proven methodology and approach to work with government that is well documented in C!A Founder Ken Miller’s books, including Extreme Government Makeover and We Don’t Make Widgets: Overcoming the Myths that Keep Government from Improving, we consistently help government clients achieve significant and noteworthy results including:

• 70% faster delivery of services

• 40% to 130% more families served, with improved accuracy and timeliness

• 60% - 80% increase in same-day eligibility determinations

• 85% reduction in open child welfare safety assessments

• Avert federal financial sanctions and/or court injunctions

• Maximize the benefits of technology and integrated solutions by first redesigning processes

Our Focus: Although our work spans all areas of government, our hearts have led us to focus on government agencies delivering vital safety net programs. This unwavering dedication to human services has helped us become an industry leader in business process redesign, having worked with 50% of the states in the nation.

Our Future: We know there is more good for government agencies to do as they work to help people in need ...and that we can help ... and that’s why we’re growing and looking for other likeminded individuals with government program experience in the areas of safety net programs, child welfare, child support, unemployment insurance, and housing to join our dynamic and highly talented team.

Our Team: For C!A, public service is a calling and way of life.

Each team member brings unique and diverse program experience representing differing levels of government operations and has a deep understanding of government processes, working with state, county and local agencies and offices, and the associated federal agencies.
