City Data Strategic Plan

Top CTA - Data Plan RFQ

The Arlington City Council has identified “Put Technology to Work” as a priority.  Technology touches all parts of City life – our organization, residents and businesses.  It is also integral in achieving the City’s other four priorities including investing in our economy, supporting quality education, enhancing regional mobility and championing great neighborhoods.  A key component of this priority is “Engage Our Data” so as to leverage data-driven decision making in order to improve internal efficiencies, analyze current and future needs and opportunities, and increase transparency for Arlington’s citizens and business community.

To this end the City needs to gain an actionable understanding of the state of city-wide data, specifically our current data inventories, platforms, connections, and business processes. Creation of a City Data Strategic Plan will contribute to our understanding of these things and will also articulate necessary future data management and integration strategies, analytics capabilities, and open data schema.
