Decision Lens Selected by Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission for IT Prioritization Efforts

February 12, 2014

Use of Decision Lens by Commission’s CIO Will Provide Analytical Decision Making Capabilities 

Decision Lens, the leading provider of cloud-based prioritization and resource optimization software, announced today that it has been chosen by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) to assist its CIO and senior governance team to prioritize and plan future IT projects that require millions in toll payer dollars to be spent. The use of Decision Lens, which is already deployed by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, will provide complete transparency into how decisions were arrived at regarding the forecasted spending of millions of toll-collected dollars concerning much needed IT modernization projects for the commission.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) was created in 1937 to construct, finance, operate, and maintain the Pennsylvania Turnpike, with funds coming directly from roadway tolls instead of taxes. The commission consists of five members. Four members are appointed by the Governor of Pennsylvania. The fifth member is the Pennsylvania Secretary of Transportation. In addition to the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the commission also operates four other highways, two of which are currently under construction. The PTC is the only transportation agency in Pennsylvania that is not part of PennDOT, though it does follow current PennDOT policies and procedures.

“Use of toll-collected dollars on capital improvement projects by government agencies are receiving increased scrutiny from both the public and politicians, which is why the use of Decision Lens by these agencies really opens the book into how and why those dollars are needed for each specific project,” said John Kealey, CEO of Decision Lens. “Gone are the days of using excel sheets and feel-it-in-your-gut decision making. Decision Lens offers a state-of-the-art decision making platform that allows decision makers to arrive at an analytical and collaborative decision concerning complex and heavily invested projects.”

Decision Lens provides guidance and support for mass transit agencies and transportation departments throughout the country. The company works closely with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority to prioritize resources and projects. The Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT), Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT), Utah Transit Authority (UTA) and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PENNDOT) also use Decision Lens for planning and resource optimization among others.

The company serves numerous well-known national and international commercial clients including Kraft, Genentech, Johnson & Johnson, Siemens, and Shell, among other organizations. Decision Lens software also is used widely throughout the Federal government with clients in the US Navy, the Joint Staff and USDA.
