Microcomputers are revolutionizing the administrative and operating process of the Tucson, Arizona, Department of Transportation. The microcomputer's ability to record, organize and compute, offers the department a tremendous amount of time savings, production enhancement and more flexibility than ever before. In fiscal 1983-84, Tucson had an annual adopted capital budget of approximately $87 million; this encompassed 11 departments of which Transportation was the second largest. The Transportation Department includes five divisions: engineering, real estate, traffic engineering, architects andd public transportation. The city's Transportation planning and programming (P & P) unit is responsible for coordinating and monitoring the various divisions' daily activities as related to the capital program, in addition to planning and programming the five-year transportation capital program. At this time, the P & P unit is using both the city's mainframe and microcomputer to accomplish most of its tasks. With the assitance of the micro, the capital program has been simplified and accelerated. (Author)
