Propelling Pittsburgh Forward
Pittsburgh Controller Michael Lamb, a 2019 Tyler Excellence Award winner, shares his city's data journey — from staying at the forefront of technology to launching Fiscal Focus Pittsburgh.
Fiscal Focus Pittsburgh gives residents, entrepreneurs, and even government employees a guided view into the city’s finances. This data-sharing portal, powered by Socrata, reveals nuances in finance and planning to help Controller Lamb run a highly-competent office based on transparency and accountability. It also helps the city share an effective, data-backed narrative about what it’s accomplished, and what it plans to do next.
