NAPA Forum on Place-Based Public Management

National Academy of Public Administration Forum on Place-Based Public Management

The rapid advance of geospatial technology and its embeddedness in everyday life (e.g., GPS in every cell phone) are fueling major changes in thinking, behavior, and interaction in business, government, and private life. To kick off our Initiative on Place-Based Public Management, the National Academy of Public Administration will host a forum on May 20, 2011, to explore the potential that place-based policies and geospatial capabilities hold for improving public management.

The centerpiece of this forum will be a Panel of federal and private-sector leaders that will (1) discuss lessons learned in developing and implementing place-based approaches to public management; and (2) identify the key challenges and opportunities in realizing the full potential of these approaches. Speakers on this Panel will include:

  • Xavier Briggs, the primary author of the 2009 White House memo on Place-Based Policy and OMB Associate Director for General Government Services
  • Raphael Bostic, Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research, Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • Keith Barber, the lead for implementing DoD priorities for “whole of government” geospatial  capabilities, National Geospatial-Intelligence Administration
  • Michael Byrne, GIO, Federal Communications Commission, and lead for implementing the National Broadband Map
  • Jerry Johnston, GIO, Environmental Protection Agency, and geospatial lead for
  • Mark Reichardt, President and CIO, Open Geospatial Consortium, a leading standards organization enabling place-based strategies

The full forum agenda is available here.
