The Polis Center at IUPUI is partnering with the State of Indiana's Management Performance Hub (MPH), the IU Public Policy Institute, and IU Business Research Center on the Indiana Data Partnership (IDP) project. The IDP was formed with Indiana University (IU) as an enhancement to MPH’s mission by creating a replicable, sustainable framework that helps additional local and non-governmental organizations successfully partner to maximize holistic solutions and minimize duplication of efforts through sharing and viewing common data.

The project is funded through the Lilly Endowment and additional partners will be added as the initiative progresses.
