Reports include:

  1. ICS-2021-03 Information Technology Service Review.  The review identified that Tecumseh operates significantly below recommended ranges for IT staffing and operating expenditures.  The underinvestment in IT is one of the significant contributors inhibiting the Town’s ability to deliver the required services both internally and externally.  Additional capacity in the areas of business analysis, management and help desk is recommended to provide for Recommended changes would provide for more strategic direction for the department as well as functional support for the business needs of the organization.
  2. CAO-2021-12 Organizational Review.  The review concluded that the overall span of control for the Chief Administrative Officer remain the same with seven distinct departments reporting to the position, under a functional model of organization. Some of the services and functions within the departments are recommended to be realigned in order to optimize the delivery of the services, improve customer service and achieve Council’s strategic priorities.  To improve customer service, changes are proposed in many of departments.
