We support the mission of WACOSA because our investment has multiple touch points within our community. A client experiences achievement, becomes part of a work team and earns a paycheck for work accomplished. Family of the client obtain piece of mind knowing their loved one has a safe and meaningful place to go upon completing their public education. Employers benefit by hiring dependable employees performing meaningful work. Our community is a better place to live when those with disabilities participate fully and are visible in all aspects of daily life.

Strategic Initiatives

For the Four-Year Planning Cycle - January 1, 2014 – June 30, 2018

Organizational intent – To Be the Premier Organization of Choice.

Plan focus:  WACOSA has continued to grow significantly over the past decade.  Dealing with this growth in the short term has meant patching IT needs together to obtain the necessary functioning level for the organization’s departments to operate effectively.  While functional, doing so has meant compromised efficiency across departmental communications and operations.  This plan is designed to rectify these inefficiencies and improve service delivery/organizational performance by redesigning how WACOSA’s various departments collaborate and by implementing state-of-the-art IT solutions.

  • Document gathering and analysis

2)      Phase II – Information Technology Implementation

  • WACOSA management/Clifton Larson Allen “kickoff session”
  • Comprehensive Information Technology Assessment  conducted with WACOSA stakeholders
  • Deconstruct departmental systems/operations
  • Troubleshoot system weaknesses and redundancies
  • Prioritizing next steps for each WACOSA department

3)      Phase II – Next Steps

  • Software selection and implementation
  • Hardware evaluation and decision-making

4)      Phase III – Implementation Support

  • Facilitate quarterly check-in meetings with WACOSA admin/management
  • Track on-going progress against plan priorities and goals
  • Address emerging needs as plan reaches full implementation
