Our Objective

We serve civic stakeholders with personalized commercial services to help them better understand when and how topics of interest are deliberated and decided upon within local government.

We strive to encourage data standards, open-source software and applications, and readily available open data so that stakeholders can reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and improve outcomes in their service delivery and, ultimately their constituent’s lives.

Historical Systemic Challenges

Our belief in an equitable government is paramount. We have a deep interest serving those that seek to dismantle and rebuild structural policies and practices that have kept many of those in under-served communities out of the conversation, shortchanged in government service delivery, unable to adequately advocate and, those unable to competitively engage with their government.

Who We Serve

Advocacy organizations, vendors of goods and services, affordable housing developers, criminal legal system consultants – a wide range of stakeholders – need more timely and better information to fulfill their missions and do their jobs more effectively. We also serve those who are not plugged into the systems and networks of government, and may not be receiving an equitable level of attention or services.

CivicScan was founded by Jerry Hall, a serial entrepreneur, social advocate, community volunteer. He is confident many stakeholders will become more meaningfully engaged in the work of our local governments given they are provided easier access to more and better quality information.
