This dataset contains information about individual projects by state agencies through the Governor’s Office of Transformation, Innovation, Management and Efficiency (GO-TIME). Data includes the project name, agency, description, status, cost savings type, non-financial benefits and net savings for the 2015-16 fiscal year. The projects are intended to produce cost savings, efficiency gains, service improvements and other benefits. State agencies are able to reinvest their savings into programs and to offset rising costs in other areas. These efforts have resulted in over $156 million in savings in the 2015-16 fiscal year, exceeding the Governor’s goal of $150 million in savings. With this success, the Governor has now challenged GO-TIME to achieve $500 million in savings by 2020. GO-TIME uses a standard methodology to calculate cost savings and a project management tool to track agency cost savings estimates and monitor the progress of initiatives on a quarterly basis, ensuring that cost savings are accurately captured and savings goals are achieved. Actual or estimated expenses are subtracted from savings to determine net project savings. Savings within each year are prorated based on the date of project implementation, with project costs taken in full in the year in which they are incurred. This data is also published and searchable on the https://www.governor.pa.gov/go-time/ website.

The coroners and medical examiners of Pennsylvania are critically important partners in the joint endeavors of the aforementioned stakeholders and are commended for their efforts in data collection and sharing, especially in light of the limited resources of personnel, equipment, and budgets that impact many. The DEA Philadelphia Field Division requested assistance from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Pharmacy, Program Evaluation Research Unit (PERU), Technical Assistance Center (TAC), in analyzing this public health data. I extend my gratitude to PERU Director Dr. Janice Pringle, and the TAC, including Program Director Dr. Lynn Mirigian and Research Specialists Laken Ethun, Allison Burrell, Erin Straw, and Marco Pugliese, for their assistance in interpretation and visualization of the data. Through this collaboration, DEA is able to ensure the Commonwealth’s stakeholders and citizens receive a professional and accurate analysis generated by experts in the law enforcement and public health fields. In 2008, the DEA Philadelphia Field Division (PFD) Intelligence Program initiated a data collection process in Philadelphia County to collect drug-related overdose death data. This collection process continued for several years, expanding to statewide collection of drug-related overdose death data from Pennsylvania’s 67 counties in 2013; the PFD published statewide overdose death reports reflecting 2014 and 2015 data in 2015 and 2016, respectively. These reports were used by law enforcement to drive investigations into drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) and to identify trends in drug distribution and use. They also provided vital data for state and county law enforcement agencies, public health and treatment entities, and opioid overdose focused task forces to use in making informed decisions regarding resource allocations and to develop strategies to address the overdose epidemic.
Emissions Inventory System (EIS) Emissions 2017 - Current Semi-Annual County Environmental Protectiondata.pa.gov | Last Updated 2019-08-28T19:06:40.000Z
EPA's Emissions Inventory System (EIS) contains information about sources that emit criteria air pollutants (CAPs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). The EIS includes estimates of annual air pollutant emissions from point, non-point, and mobile sources in the Pennsylvania counties. EPA collects information about emission sources and releases an updated version of the NEI database every three years. The data made available in the NEI are used for air dispersion modeling, regional strategy development, setting regulations, air toxins risk assessment, and tracking trends in emissions over time. The data derived in the State of Pennsylvania is published and searchable online on the www.pa.gov website. This data will be updated annually for the prior calendar year in the first Quarter of the following year.

This is a connection to the Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center in Pittsburgh, to the Pennsylvania Open Data Portal. The Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center provides a shared technological and legal infrastructure to support research, analysis, decision making, and community engagement. It was created in 2015 and is managed by the University of Pittsburgh Center for Urban and Social Research, in partnership with Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh. The Data Center would not be possible without the trust of our partners and support from the Richard King Mellon Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, and the University of Pittsburgh. The University Center has long served as a community information intermediary in Allegheny County. Information intermediaries help people find and use information to improve their communities. The Data Center is one in a long line of initiatives of the University Center in this intermediary role. From 2005-2014, the Center operated the Pittsburgh Neighborhood and Community Information System, is home to the Pittsburgh Today regional indicators initiative, and recently launched the Southwestern Pennsylvania Community Profiles community indicators project. Over time, the University Center realized that the broader use of data in the region was inhibited by the lack of a legal infrastructure, technologies that did not support the dissemination of raw data, incomplete data documentation, and a lack of capacity for managing information in a fragmented political environment. The Data Center provides this infrastructure while institutionalizing the role of a data intermediary within a regional open data infrastructure. In 2013 and 2014, we wrote about our early open data experiences in a two part series (part one, part two). We are often asked by people in other cities to talk more about the Regional Data Center. We’re happy to do so, and we find that everyone gets the most out of these conversations by first reviewing our document containing lots of background information about the project. We are a proud partner in the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership.
