With the help of a $300,000 grant from MacArthur, Mayor Rahm Emanuel today introduced a proposal to have Chapin Hall work with the City's Chief Data Officer to document citywide data and consolidate it into a singular data platform that will improve City operations, services and analytical decision making. This is a continuation of the Mayor's efforts to improve the City's technological capabilities to be more efficient and intelligent through data driven decision making.
