THE NEXT PITTSBURGH

“It is now our moment, our opportunity -- indeed, it is our duty -- to create the next Pittsburgh:  A city that gleams not only with the lights and glass of our towers, but one that also glows with the hope of revived neighborhoods, that thrives in a renewed sense of possibility for every child born here.”

--Mayor William Peduto
I&P has begun promoting its Innovation Roadmap.

The City of Pittsburgh's goal is to translate ideas and inventions into goods or services that improve the quality of life for its citizens.

Resilient Pittsburgh

Recently-announced Chief Resilience Officer Grant Ervin will lead Pittsburgh in the development of an urban resilience strategy.

Pittsburgh Climate Action Plan 3.0

Pittsburgh is in the process of developing its third climate action plan (PCAP 3.0) to analyze and implement strategies, policies and projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions within city limits and mitigate Pittsburgh’s contribution to global climate change.

OPEN DATA LEGISLATION PASSED UNANIMOUSLY

In March 2014, the City of Pittsburgh passed Open Data Legislation, setting the default to "open" and paving the way to increase transparency in City operations and build collaborative information-sharing relationships with community groups.' 

We live in an age of infinite possibilities. The Department of Innovation & Performance (I&P), created in February 2014, reflects Mayor Peduto’s vision for the Next Pittsburgh and our team’s role in fostering a culture of accountability and innovation at levels and sectors of society. I&P aims to transform Pittsburgh into a world-class city through not only managing information systems and delivering technology, but by pursuing data-driven decision-making, creating sustainable solutions, and driving quality performance.

While technology is an important component to this, it is not the only end goal. There is no silver bullet, fancy platform, or expensive software that can magically transform the City. The City’s greatest asset is us, its people, and our commitment to collaboration and better serving the City government and its residents.

Beyond servicing the City and its departments and agencies internally with strategy and hardware, I&P has a wider external component. We work to better service all residents of Pittsburgh by closing the digital divide, fostering entrepreneurship and innovation, improving access and application of information, and empowering neighborhoods, especially vulnerable communities. We want citizens to better utilize their resources and have the information to make better decisions and take action.

I&P aims to transform Pittsburgh into a world-class city through the intersections of technology, sustainability, and performance. While separate, like rotating wheel cogs, the three areas will only move forward when working together.
