For the next year, Baltimore’s budget director will join other city leaders to explore using data in local government.

Andrew Kleine is one of 15 city government workers who will be part of a fellowship run by Results for America. Other fellows are reporting from D.C., Philadelphia, New Orleans, New York and Los Angeles, among others.

They’ll work to map out how to use data to improve outcomes in a specific policy area over 2-3 years, and establish a partnership with an external entity that can evaluate a program or policy area.

Fellows participate in four two-day strategic thinking gatherings, and monthly progress calls. Results for America also publishes case studies about each city.

Kleine was one of the Baltimore leaders behind OutcomeStat, which makes the city’s internal performance data available for public view, and he’s spoken about wanting to get more community involvement in the budgeting process. During Kleine’s fellowship, the city is also getting new help on data use from the Johns Hopkins-based Center for Government Excellence. Results for America is also involved in that wider effort to use more data in local government, called What Works Cities.

“We can measurably improve lives in our community by embracing the regular use of data and evidence in our policy and program decisions,” Kleine said in a statement.
