Point of Beginning The Challenges Ahead MnGeos mandate is comprehensive and ambitious. It will take time to fulfill its promise and there are many challenges ahead that we need to face together. Priorities Match priorities to legislative mandate. Operational Evaluate existing services and make needed adjustments. Organizational Evaluate organizational capacities and make needed adjustments. Resources Focus limited resources on high priorities and pursue options to fill the resource gaps. Partnerships Identify strategic partnerships and work to create them.

Doesn't LMIC already do this stuff?Why do we need an MGIO? Doesn't LMIC already do this stuff? Why does the office need a new name?Why does the office need a new name? What will happen to LMIC?What will happen to LMIC? Why will the MGIO be housed in Administration and not OET?Why will the MGIO be housed in Administration and not OET? What happens to the GCGI and its committees?What happens to the GCGI and its committees? I don't work in state government. Why should I care about the MGIO?I don't work in state government. Why should I care about the MGIO? Funding for the MGIO seems too little to support the legislatively mandated duties. How will this problem be addressed?Funding for the MGIO seems too little to support the legislatively mandated duties. How will this problem be addressed?
