Public Technology Institute

Public Technology Institute (PTI) is a national, not-for-profit member-supported organization based in Washington, D.C.

As the only technology organization created by and for cities and counties, PTI works with a core network of leading local government officials—the PTI membership—to identify opportunities for technology research, to share solutions and recognize member achievements, and develop best practices that address the technology management, governance and policy issues that impact local government.

Officials from PTI member governments participate in Councils and Forums that address specific technology areas. Through partnerships with industry, federal agencies and other governmental organizations, PTI shares the results of its activities and the expertise of its members with the broader audience of the more than 30,000 U.S. cities and counties.

Through research, focus groups, online discussions, publications, conferences, pilots and demonstrations, and other information sharing vehicles, PTI’s local government and industry members work together to develop and apply technology to the challenges facing communities of all sizes.

PTI brings its Sustainability Council and a comprehensive library of references, data and tools to the California Sustainability Alliance. In partnership with another non-profit Alliance partner, The Public Sustainability Partnership, PTI will work with the Alliance to develop a best-practices oriented sustainability benchmarking tool for local governments that will be deployed in California and throughout the U.S. The planned launch date for this tool is May 2009.
