ADVISORY – MONDAY – GO-TIME: DEP to Announce Increased Oil and Gas Drilling Inspections in 2017 as a Result of Switch to Electronic Process

Harrisburg, PA –  The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will announce that it’s on track to complete more oil and gas drilling site inspections in 2017 than in 2016 as a result of a GO-TIME project that replaced paper forms with a mobile app.

Oil and gas Deputy Secretary Scott Perry will discuss this and several other productivity increases resulting from the early 2017 implementation of a mobile app for field inspectors, after years of a paper-based process.

Sharon Ward, Director of the Governor’s Office of Transformation, Innovation, Management and Efficiency (GO-TIME), will give an overview of the goals and successes to date of the GO-TIME initiative.

WHEN: Monday, December 18, 11:00-11:30 AM
