Establishing partnerships with the private sector has been an important part of HACEP's transition to more cost-effective operations, as well. One of its key partnerships is with Du & Associates, Inc., a minority woman-owned consulting firm that specializes in RAD advisory services. Cichon, CEO, says that working with Du & Associates helped the agency create better processes and train its team more effectively.
"Shifting a government workforce's mentality to a private business model is a difficult thing", he says. "That's what Du & Associates has helped us to do.'"
