  7. 7. Analyses range between qualitative and quantitative assessments Urban Design chapter is very qualitative, Open Space is more quantitative
  8. 8. Output of process is a report (EIS/EAS) that discloses the proposal’s affect on the environment, broadly defined In most cases, all this analysis is done by environmental consultants hired by applicants, but that work has to be double checked by the relevant city agencies. This process expensive, time-consuming, and convoluted.

  16. 16. Project becomes bigger then tech: policy and business improvement Leadership supports agile, iterative development to policy and methodologies, not just digital product Cross-disciplinary team: web developers, designers, data engineers, policy and technical experts, business improvement analysts
  17. 17. Working model just as important as technical output: Development team (biweekly sprints) Working group (biweekly) - Includes director of EARD, Director of Business Improvement Steering Committee (quarterly) - Agency director, head counsel, COO
  18. 18. Methodology Improvements New and better data Related technical products and initiatives Technical Manual Revisions CEQR App
  19. 19. Publicly launched Public Schools analysis in October 2018 > 100 users with 1 project or more 2 projects per user (median) ~ 50% less time (~ 8 hrs / project) per analysis with CEQR App ~ $1000 / project savings ~ $200,000 savings
