Embedding data experts into city agencies to improve government efficiency and delivery of services for residents.


The Data Fellows Program supports city government agencies to use data more effectively and provides a growth environment for data analysts who are earlier in their careers in local government.

Started in October 2019, with 2 OPI data fellows, the program has expanded to 6 data fellows in 5 agencies across the city, totaling 16 fellowship rounds with 8 fellows graduating into other roles in city government.

Currently, there are 2 fellows who are employees of OPI and who support projects in other agencies. In addition, the program provides support to additional fellows who are employees of different agencies.
