Who We Are
Headquartered in Golden Valley, Local Government Information Systems (LOGIS) is a Joint Powers, intergovernmental consortium of Minnesota local government units. The mission of LOGIS is to “Facilitate leading-edge, effective and adaptable public sector technology solutions through the sharing of ideas, risks and resources in a member-driven consortium.”
The LOGIS consortium is controlled by its members. LOGIS’ Board of Directors is composed of one representative from each agency. All funding decisions are controlled by the members through an annual budget, an annual work plan, and by action of an Executive Committee, acting as officers of the Board. This committee meets quarterly and establishes operating policies, sets service charges, and approves expenditures.
LOGIS was founded in 1972 by seven cities – Golden Valley, Crystal, Eden Prairie, Edina, St. Louis Park, Coon Rapids and Brooklyn Center – that were looking to pool resources and save taxpayer dollars. LOGIS currently has 52 IT member organizations and serves more than 2.3 million residents throughout Minnesota.
LOGIS invests in best of breed application software from national vendors such as Oracle, JD Edwards and TriTech. Costs for technology solutions and applications are shared among members. Our member support staff is based right here in Minnesota.
