For Cities

Welcome! Our mission is to help local government officials around the world learn from one another as they upgrade infrastructure systems to be stronger, smarter and more sustainable.
The Atlas (this website!) is a safe, hassle-free space to do just that. We provide all of our support to our partner governments, including access to The Atlas, for free.
The Atlas homepage is just the entry point for our support of city, county and utility staff. Behind the log-in page, you can access many other features, including:
  • Connect with local government colleagues who have experience with the solutions you want to learn about. All communication takes place on The Atlas because we respect your already-full email inbox.
  • Search the RFP database to understand your procurement options & make writing procurement documents for new infrastructure solutions easier. For example, are you looking to build a distributed solar microgrid? You can pull the statement of work used to do just that.
  • Upload your own RFPs so we can hand-deliver the solicitations to a wider range of more relevant potential bidders.
  • Share what’s working in your own community. Many Atlas partner cities use The Atlas as a way to tell their project stories in a format that lives on far beyond conference presentations.
We love working with local governments of all types, sizes and geographies. We pride ourselves on partnering with local government officials and staff who are forward-looking and striving to find new ways to improve the daily lives of the citizens they represent. We work with folks with all different types of titles from many different departments, but here’s a sampling of departments: Public Works, Planning, Engineering, Mayors Offices, Sustainability and Resilience, Information Technology, Innovation.
We know that you are already bombarded by sales pitches, and that the sheer volume can make it difficult to sort through who could actually be helpful in solving a problem. This is why we structured the platform so that our city partners can choose to start a conversation with companies on The Atlas, but companies cannot contact you directly on site.
Want to learn more? We recommend listening to this GovLove podcast, where Atlas co-founder Ellory Monks and Kip Harkness (Deputy City Manager of Atlas Partner City San Jose, CA) talk about all of the pro-bono support The Atlas provides to its partner cities.
We launched The Atlas in August 2016. In just a year, we were helping officials from 50+ cities, counties and utilities make tangible progress towards upgrading their infrastructure.
