Georgia’s Joint Agency Data Acquisition and Management Program

Overview

Summary

Over a period of more than 4 years, the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) have been teaming together to develop and implement a comprehensive interagency data acquisition and management program. By reducing unnecessarily data duplication, providing more powerful and standardized analytics tools, and purchasing in bulk, GDOT and ARC conservatively estimate an annual savings of $3.9 million. Additionally, the comprehensive interagency data acquisition and management program has helped position both agencies to better address their agency-wide goals. 

In this case study you will learn: 

  1. How Georgia DOT And Atlanta Regional Commission worked together to determine data needs and overlaps in TSMO.
  2. How by reducing unnecessarily data duplication, providing more powerful and standardized analytics tools, and purchasing in bulk the program could reduce overall costs.
  3. How the working group created long term success and buy-in by creating a written program charter agreement to memorialize their actions and motivations
