HdL’s four-decades of experience in public agency solutions will help drive success in North Texas


October 07, 2021 Update

Gov Tech interviewed NTXIA about the new partnership... “A core element to our cities, like many around the state and country, is ways to streamline processes, recover costs, generate revenue and better leverage data analytics,” said Jennifer Sanders, North Texas Innovation Alliance co-founder, in an email exchange with Government Technology. “The insight and expertise that HdL has developed over its history brings a fresh approach that many of our members hadn't previously considered.” More specifically, this new partnership has HdL joining with nearly 36 city, county, agency, economic development, academic and private-sector members to work on efforts that include fresh approaches to financial models and revenue generation, NTXIA said.

“With federal funds not seen in our lifetime being put into motion, the need to be strategic, bold and prudent is paramount,” she said. “Counsel on highest and best utilization of these funds and setting the right indirect cost structure is invaluable in maximizing the impact recent and future investments can have to our residents.”

(Houston, Texas) – Today, HdL Companies, a leader of auditing, operations, and revenue management solutions for public agencies, announced its partnership with the North Texas Innovation Alliance (NTXIA), a 501(c)3 consortium of key cross-sector stakeholders working collaboratively to drive innovative solutions at the intersection of community, data, and technology. The NTXIA’s mission is to create the most connected, smart, and resilient region in the country. 

Founded by local government leaders, HdL assists agencies nationwide with a unique government perspective and dedication. The HdL Texas team, operating since 2007, optimizes operational efficiency and maximizes revenue with sales and use tax reporting, auditing, hotel tax administration, economic development, and indirect cost recovery. “We are excited to partner with such a forward-thinking group. We are confident we can provide access to economic trend information, data analytics and reporting that will allow local governments to maximize their revenue streams,” remarked Richard Fletcher, Vice President of Operations and Client Services. 

In partnering with the NTXIA, HdL joins nearly three dozen city, county, agency, economic development, academic and private sector members, working collaboratively on programs that advance new solutions to large-scale challenges – one of the most critical being financial models and revenue generation.

“Today, there is tremendous opportunity for the public and private sector to work together to improve infrastructure, operations and services to ensure the future prosperity of North Texas, but it requires a best-minds approach and a true spirit of partnership,” commented Jennifer Sanders, Executive Director, North Texas Innovation Alliance. “HdL brings true best-in-class expertise in revenue recovery and financial counsel, we are so grateful for the team’s support and cannot wait to see what will be achieved together.”

As local governments nationally continue to adapt to evolving resident expectations, budget shortfalls, aging infrastructure, and emerging technology to improve service delivery, North Texas is emerging as a leader to stay on top of trends and committed to adopting innovative, research-based solutions. New solutions and business models are emerging that give governments new avenues to partner with the private sector to deliver new or improved services or revenue streams. 

The NTXIA will enhance economic vitality and highlight a culture of innovation that supports municipalities, agencies, companies and academic institutions across North Texas. In addition to the consortium addressing both current and evolving challenges of efficiencies, sustainability, economic growth and quality of life, the NTXIA will also focus on regional standards, policies and models that will facilitate faster deployment and results.

Webinar: Unleash Your Grant Portfolio & Save Your General Fund

Thursday, April 20th at 11 AM PDT

Agencies spend on average 30%-40% of total program cost in indirect (soft) costs to support federally funded grant programs. And more often than not, these costs end up subsidized by the already stretched and/or overburdened General Fund.

The good news? Grant awards allow for reimbursement of these indirect costs, so it’s time to stop leaving money on the table. That’s where HdL can help - by recovering these uncaptured costs and returning them to your agency.
