Governor Mike Pence today announced the State of Indiana is developing a data analytics tool for use by state agencies that will help increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the State, especially on issues that involve multiple agencies such as infant mortality and child fatality, public safety, and economic development.
"The launch of the Management and Performance Hub (MPH) will transform and streamline the way Indiana tackles the challenges facing the state and will help us deliver smarter, lower-cost services to taxpayers," said Governor Pence. "Systems like this are commonplace in the private sector and will help government move at the speed of business."
The majority of the funding for MPH will come from current Indiana Office of Technology (IOT) resources for technology improvement. Lilly Endowment Inc. has awarded a $500,000 grant to IOT for cutting-edge technology enhancements to the MPH program.
The state's existing transparency portal also will be revamped to be more user friendly, allowing the public to customize the data they want to view. As part of this project, health statistics, BMV transaction times, disaster relief response, and recidivism statistics will be added to the transparency portal.
Established by attached Executive Order 14-06, the MPH is coordinated by the Office of Management and Budget and the Indiana Office of Technology.
