GNRC Annual Report for FY 2021


Agency Investments

Partnerships and Programs Regional Transportation Plan In GNRC’s role as the lead facilitator of regional transportation planning, the agency coordinated efforts among local governments, state and federal agencies, and stakeholders to develop the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). This multi-year process concluded in February 2021, with Middle Tennessee mayors adopting a 25-year plan allocating more than $10.5 billion in federal, state, and local funding for transportation programs and projects. More information about the RTP can be found on page 35. Tennessee Serves Network GNRC became a partner with Tennessee Serves Network, a statewide collaboration of volunteer centers dedicated to bringing people and the community together through an easily accessible online portal, first launched by Volunteer Tennessee and Tennessee’s first lady Maria Lee. This partnership has provided GNRC the resources to make its Volunteer Portal available to organizations in its 13 counties to recruit and manage volunteers. More information about the volunteer program can be found on page 38. Economic Development Advisory Committee Throughout FY21, the Economic and Community Development team facilitated an update to the region’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. Through this process, GNRC reestablished its Advisory Committee of Mayors, business leaders, and state officials to cooperatively develop a strategy to align policy and infrastructure investments with the region’s shared vision for economic growth. More information about the CEDS can be found on page 33.

Outreach and Advocacy In FY21, GNRC hired its first outreach and advocacy coordinator to support Aging and Disability Services. By investing in this role, GNRC is committed to expanding its partnerships with other organizations that support the aging population in Middle Tennessee and broaden awareness of resources to those in need. Financial Management GNRC invested in Sage Intacct®, a cloud-based financial management system that will support the agency’s growing needs. The system will provide automation to importation processes, reduce redundancy, and provide staff leadership and Regional Council members with greater visibility into real-time organizational performance. Talent Retention and Attraction In tandem with the move to Sage Intacct, GNRC implemented a new Human Resources Information System, Paycom. Paycom centralizes the core functions of HR of employee data management, payroll and expense reporting, and recruitment efforts. Once fully implemented Paycom also serves as GNRC’s training platform and performance tracking for all staff members.
