Step 1: Information Gathering and Location Analysis

If you’re selecting a new site, our relationship starts with a needs analysis, where we gather all the information about your business and goals. We’ll ask questions like: How much are you going to invest? What are your job creation plans? What about workforce needs? Any important deadlines?

We’ll compile and analyze the data to better understand your location options, do a needs analysis, and handle all the heavy lifting throughout the process to make everything simple and streamlined for your business.

Step 2: Meetings with State and Local Officials

Incentive procurement is highly competitive. Making the case to government decision-makers is one of our true differentiators.

We leverage our longstanding relationships with state and local officials to help you secure the best incentive package, which means bringing clients and community partners together to get the best results for everyone.

Step 3: Incentives, Applications, and Negotiations

The incentive process is complicated and time-consuming. We’ll figure out which incentive programs you qualify for and then create a strategy for positioning your project to state and local governments so that you get the best deal possible. We’ll also handle the contracting, documentation, ongoing reporting, and other needs so you can focus on your business.

Step 4: Formal Approvals and Contracts

Your project’s success ultimately depends on public buy-in, even if you have a strong application and the best incentive package. Whether seeking formal approval from officials familiar with your project or a new team of government decision-makers, we’ll make sure final authorization is efficient and timely.

Step 5: On-Going Compliance

For many consulting firms, the client relationship ends after the incentives package ink is dry. For KSM Location Advisors' dedicated team, our work is just getting started. Managing compliance is just as important to ensure our clients receive every possible dollar that was negotiated.
