Alliance - Strong and sustainable government finances are essential to the long-term health of the Federal, State and Local economies. Long-term financial objectives for government are to create stable economic environments with low borrowing costs in which business and consumer confidence can drive investment and employment growth. Short-term goals are to reduce spending whilst increasing cash collection with minimal complaints or adverse publicity. An alliance with ARL assists government to meet these objectives.
