Shared Services

The Nassau County Department of Shared Services manages and administers functions of county government common to all departments. It works closely with the departments of Purchasing, Information Technology, Human Resources, and the offices of Equal Employment Opportunity, and Labor Relations.

As part of New York State’s County-Wide Shared Services Initiative (CWSSI) law, the department of Shared Services also develops the yearly Nassau County Shared Services Plan, in conjunction with local municipalities. Through intergovernmental cooperation, the plan establishes opportunities to share and coordinate services, with the goal of making government more efficient and reducing costs for taxpayers. Email us at SharedServices@nassaucountyny.gov with ideas or suggestions for new shared service opportunities, or how the county can provide current services more efficiently.

The Shared Services Panel is led by the County Executive, and consists of the mayors and supervisors of the County’s three towns, two cities, and 64 incorporated villages. The Panel recommends initiatives to coordinate services and provide cost reductions, and votes to approve the yearly plan.
