The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research Best Practice Pilot Program (BP3) includes a suite of programs and partnerships that produce replicable case studies of best practices being adopted and implemented at the local and regional level around the state. A small set of best practice pilots were completed in the summer of 2016 using the CivicSpark Governor’s AmeriCorps Initiative as a preliminary proof of concept for the launch of this longer term program. The BP3 was created to formalize and institutionalize a process to apply to the ad hoc technical assistance provided by OPR on a regular basis on a variety of topics. Through this program, OPR will develop a robust library of case studies for local and regional partners to utilize in their planning and policies, while informing state policy and providing training, tools and networking opportunities for stakeholders. The BP3 consists of partnerships with federal, state and local partners. Some more organized BP3 participating programs are described below.
