When governments need help with international matters, be it the Pennsylvania state government, community governments in Western Pennsylvania, or the federal government, they turn to UCIS. UCIS assists government officials with briefings, background analyses, and updating of current events. Briefings have been delivered to federal government officials, the Governor of Pennsylvania,  various state secretaries, state legislators, and the mayor of Pittsburgh. In turn, these government officials provide briefings for foreign visiting groups to UCIS concerning the functioning of state and local government in the United States.
