Exploring Automation in Government

Descargar para leer sin conexión

Local government has many moving parts, complex workflows, data routing and security concerns, and a general difficulty in buying and using new software. Building bespoke, custom software for each and every local government effort is also time-consuming and not a great use of public resources.

In this community presentation, San Francisco’s director of product management will showcase the latest thinking on how automation, with tools like Camunda, can be used to simplify and improve existing needs as well as address future problems.

Exploring Automation in Government

  1. 1. Exploring Automation in Government Process Automation in Digital Government Services
  2. 2. Hi, I’m Adrianna. I’m the director of product management at San Francisco Digital Services. We’re a digital team embedded in local government, working on a range of services from affordable housing to permits and more.
  3. 3. Before we begin: - All opinions are my own - All usage of Camunda is in my personal capacity as a tinkerer and is not an endorsement
  4. 4. Why does tech seem to suck in government?
  5. 5. Why can’t your city or county seem to build something that works?
  6. 6. Why don’t we “just”...?
  7. 7. Which government are we talking about anyway?
  8. 8. Many types of government - Federal, state, county, municipal - Executive, legislative, judiciary - Unified city/county: e.g. City and County of San Francisco, Miami-Dade County - Sovereign tribes, governing bodies, park districts Source: “A Civic Technologist’s Practice Guide”, Cyd Harrell (2020)
  9. 9. Many types of people in government - Elected - Appointed - Career staff Source: “A Civic Technologist’s Practice Guide”, Cyd Harrell (2020)
  10. 10. Many types of people that government has to serve, usually all at once - All ethnicities - Major languages - Rich and poor - Housed and unhoused - Immigration status - Device / internet type - People with disabilities - Different genders
  11. 11. It’s not always a tech problem.
  12. 12. But things are changing!
  13. 13. Now ● Massive software applications and infrastructure that do only one thing ● Government project managers supported by vendors ● Monolithic, not reusable ● Not easy to change business processes ● Modern tech stacks not too different from in the private sector ● Embedded digital teams as government employees ● Reusable components ● Tech and business processes are adaptable The Future
  14. 14. Process automation helps to orchestrate large, complex systems and processes so we can build new ones on top of them.
  15. 15. Embedded digital teams - Work as consultants to government teams (like 18F) - Or work on supporting delivery within a government entity, like my team For more info, read Cyd Harrell’s “Civic Technologist’s Practice Guide” (link).
  16. 16. What government needs - Develop programs for residents (policy) - Offer services to residents and businesses (delivery) Process automation can benefit end users (residents) and users (government staff) in the delivery of digital government services.
  17. 17. How I started exploring process automation ● The world was falling apart ● Lots of people needed help ● Everyone in local government was under-staffed and doing new things overnight I wanted to explore process automation so that the 5 people we had could give out as much money ASAP.
  18. 18. What worked ● Launch a service in days, used by thousands of people ● Introduce new business processes and know that the backend could support it ● Train staff and accept and process applications immediately I personally believe that when someone in government says “we need case management” it really means “we need to automate processes”.
  19. 19. What didn’t work ● Professional services model means we didn’t develop in-house skills ● It was hard to replicate this project again with the one-time setup that we did In every org, there is probably someone like me: an advocate for BPMN and orchestration tools. But we need to build momentum and get buy-in.
  20. 20. What I’m doing - Building small prototypes, learning from like-minded folks in similar teams - Exploring ways to introduce BPMN workflows into the work that we do Often, like everything in government, procurement is where we trip up. It’s hard to buy something unless its value is known. It’s hard to know and prove value until we can run something in production.
  21. 21. Get married When people get married, they need a couple of things. ● Tell City Hall they plan to get married ● Tell City Hall if they want to change their names ● Show proof that they are no longer married, if they were previously married ● Receive a date to get married in person or online ● Have the marriage ceremony performed and authenticated ● Have the
  22. 22. Get permits to start a food truck ● Licensing: business license, drivers’ license ● Permits: food handling permit, health department permit, parking permits, special events permits ● Certificates: insurance, workers compensation, fire inspection certificate
  23. 23. Other interesting areas ● All grants, licenses, permits ● Anything touching communication ● Status lookup for applications ● Feedback from the public
  24. 24. The primary interface between a resident or business, and the government, is a form.
  25. 25. Data from the form is then fed into a process.
  26. 26. In the old days: one person, one office, one form, one Excel sheet. Today: collaborative workflows. We need to orchestrate and automate.
  27. 27. - Routing and hand-off - Not lose applications - Reduce manual entry - Enable collaboration between teams - Improve communication touchpoints with public Benefits of Process Automation
  28. 28. - Difficult procurement processes - Security concerns - Different way of working that requires training or support or professional services and a strong internal champion - Can take a long time to get to production - Challenge of making huge impact if only used in a few areas by a few teams - Many, many stakeholders in government Challenges of Process Automation
  29. 29. Reach out if you’re also working on government or nonprofit work! Let’s build a community, share our stories. How you can help

Notas del editor

  • Notes from Claire:

    Share why I want to present
    Does each section / slide showcase professional / personal?
    What do I want my audience to think, feel or do?
  • As I previously mentioned, more and more government teams have embedded digital teams now. That means it’s people like me, who have never worked in public service, now wondering how to contribute my skills towards public google.
  • So far, we only have one public-facing project that has process automation. And it was with one of your competitors, which has more of a professional services business.
  • Now, I’m going to talk about some ways in which other cities can potentially use process automation. Note that this is not mean that San Francisco is going to use camunda in ALL of these services, it just means that it’s got one employee, me, who is looking at using process automation in some of the things that I work on.
  • It varies from city to city.
