Pima County Public Works’ Real Property Services

Information Management

Jones Payne worked with Pima County (County) in Arizona to produce a land management needs assessment for the Public Works’ Real Property Services (Real Estate) division. The County owns 84,000 acres of property in Southeastern Arizona. Real Estate manages another 127,600 acres, which includes parks, environmental and cultural reserves, grazing leases, easements and more. Jones Payne served as a sub-consultant, helping to assess the needs and functional requirements for a new land management system (LMS), including a new database-driven website application that tracks transactions and property-related information needed to maintain a comprehensive property inventory of all County-owned and leased lands.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Interviewed key staff members from RPS, as well as staff from collaborating departments, including Environmental Services, Natural Resources Parks and Recreation, Cultural Resources, Water Resources, and County Administrative Services.
  • Compiled information from interviews to assess the opportunities that a multi-user, interdepartmental LMS system could provide, and determine the requirements and constraints that a system would need to account for.
  • Developed recommendations into a planning and recommendations document, which followed the County‚Äôs Information Technology assessment format.
