Metropolitan Affairs Nonprofit Corporations (MANCs) explored means for improving productivity and technology utilization in the nonfederal public sector. In the first phase of the project, conferences were held in four regions--San Francisco, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, and New York. The regions were selected to represent a cross section of the country's large urban areas. The subjects included four key technological concerns--transit, environmental monitoring, service delivery, and physical development. Participants included leaders from industry, government, civic organizations, foundations, universities, and consulting firms. In the second phase, the conclusions were tested and refined through review conferences in the additional cities of Detroit, Atlanta, and Washington, DC. As a consequence of this conference study and review process, this report constitutes a comprehensive appraisal by more than 300 highly-experienced practitioners of technology and public affairs in seven representative urban regions across the country. Included in the summary are the report findings, and recommendations.
