Envision a Data Analytics Oriented Policy Making

Overview

ABOUT AAUPF

Advanced Analytics Units for Public Finance (AAUPF) has been established at Centre for Economic Policy and Public Finance (CEPPF) to build technological frameworks and analytics platforms on public finance and socio economic indicators of Bihar. It is a unique initiative where prime focus is to develop advanced technological solutions to facilitate precision in policy making through rigorous data analysis. AAUPF also works on preparation of protocols for data governance of economic survey data so as to improve overall quality of data collated across different departments. This would enable better policy research and academic studies on different subject areas of Bihar.

The emphasis of AAUPF is to create cloud-based analytics applications and data management platforms to organise public finance information of the State. AAUPF would also digitize the Economic Survey of Bihar, prepare guidelines for economic survey data collection and governance, and create GIS enabled applications to correlate data and garner insights for effective policy formulation.

AAUPF is supported by the Department of Finance, Government of Bihar and is hosted at the Asian Development Research Institute, Patna, Bihar.

WHAT WE DO

Our work at Advanced Analytics Unit for Public Finance (AAUPF) largely focuses on creation of data and information management applications on public finance and socio-economic indicators.

Some of our work include:


  • a. Development of Analytics Reporting Tools:
    Analytical Reporting is critical for effective policy analysis, assessment, and formulation. AAUPF is developing geo-spatial and graphic visualization centred analytics applications on various socio-economic and public finance data of Government of Bihar.
  • b. Creation of Integrated Database Management System (IDMS):
    IDMS platform would help in integration and maintenance of wide range of socio-economic data of the State. Since a large set of data is sourced from different departments making it increasingly difficult to maintain and analyse, cloud-based IDMS would help in integration, quality evaluation, and analysis of primary and secondary level government data. It would also facilitate design of data governance protocols for different departments to further improve data quality and reduce data redundancy.
  • c. Development of Data Governance Policy:
    AAUPF would advise Government of Bihar on Data Governance Policy. This would help in improving the entry, normalization, maintenance, and regulation of data across departments. The idea is to create department wise data governance protocols to help institutions effectively access data for policy formulation and policy analysis.
  • d. Establishment of Bihar Public Finance Data Bank:
    The Centre for Economic Policy and Public Finance (CEPPF) and Government of Bihar engages with diverse group of international and national institutions for academic research and studies on different socio-economic indicators of the State.
    The foundation of these academic works is the primary and secondary socio-economic data of the State. AAUPF plans to establish a subscription-based online data bank and data exchange portal to improve data access for academic work and policy analysis.

HOW IT HELPS

Application of Data Science in Public Policy enables government bodies and public institutions to better assess the socio-economic issues across different indicators. 

Data driven policy making establishes a greater levels of transparency and efficacy in allocation of resources, creating a huge prospect to save tax payers money in implementation of public initiatives.
