Sumter Local Government Consulting’s (“Sumter LGC”) primary mission is to provide local governments with the resources they need to best serve their communities. As a local government consulting firm, we also assist private sector companies and nonprofits solve problems with their local governments.

Our customized services cover a broad range of local government needs. Our expertise covers human resource issues such as executive search, interim services, organizational development, and investigations. We also help local governments with special projects, fractional consulting, and financial management consulting. Sumter LGC is a nimble and adaptable local government consulting firm that can customize services to meet your unique needs.

Why “Sumter”? The name “Sumter” was chosen because the first city in the United States to adopt a “council-manager” form of government was Sumter, South Carolina. We feel that “Sumter” was an appropriate and honorable name for a local government consulting firm dedicated to ensuring well-run local governments.
