States have refined effective policies over time. Best practices in licensing, tracking, packaging, labeling, and more should be core elements of regulatory systems. Erik assists agencies in integrating these practices into their programs.


The early days are crucial to ensure long-term success. Whether scaling an agency, building new systems, or developing SOPs, Erik can assist in planning and guide your steps to avoid future setbacks.


Proper technology and systems are crucial to running a high functioning regulatory agency. Erik can help implement new systems, refine current systems, recommend new technologies and educate on data collection practices to better inform agency initiatives.
