The Municipal and Financial Services Group (MFSG) is a specialized management consulting practice that was established in 1976 and was for many years part of the management consulting department of national or regional CPA firms or engineering firms. MFSG focuses on the financial and management needs of public sector infrastructure (especially in environmentally related areas such as water, wastewater, stormwater and solid waste utilities) and in the efficient delivery of public sector services. The practice was organized in 2002 operating as a separate firm, incorporated in Maryland as a limited liability corporation (LLC). MFSG is certified as an MBE/WBE by the States of Maryland and Delaware and is recognized as such by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. MFSG’s personnel are active and involved in professional and industry associations; the Director of MFSG’s practice recently completed his term as chairman of the national American Water Works Association (AWWA) Finance and Accounting Committee and currently chairs that organization’s GASB 34 Task Force. MFSG’s personnel are active in AWWA, Maryland Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) and Water Environment Federation (WEF), both locally and nationally.
