PIP Presentations Begin on Monday, March 27

March 23, 2017

Starting Monday, March 27, Metro departments and partner organizations from the community will present their Public Investment Plan (PIP) proposals to a panel consisting of Mayor Barry, Finance Director Talia Lomax-O’dneal, Chief Operating Officer Rich Riebeling, Director of Innovation Nancy Shapiro, and Michael Burcham, CEO of Narus Health and founding President of the Nashville Entrepreneur Center.

Departments have formed interdisciplinary teams and partnered with outside groups to develop proposals that address education and youth, transit/infrastructure, affordable housing/homelessness, community and economic development, public safety, and central government operations, all of which are key priorities for Mayor Barry. The innovative PIP process was initiated during the FY2016-2017 budget cycle. The PIPs being presented this year are a combination of new programs, extensions of previously approved PIPs, or revisions of plans that were not adopted last year. The PIP program is designed to encourage innovation and break down the silos within local government to improve the way public services are delivered to the community.

Each team presenting its PIP proposal will have seven minutes to make its pitch to Mayor Barry and the other panel members, followed by questions.
