The Arizona 9-1-1 program is committed to providing transparency to stakeholders about the projects it supports. One way it can do this is by maintaining a publicly available list of active and completed projects, along with details about each project's goals, timelines, and progress. This information can be made available on the program's website or through other public channels, such as press releases or public presentations.
In addition to providing information about specific projects, the Arizona 9-1-1 Program may update its overall progress and performance regularly. This could include data on the number of 9-1-1 calls received and other measures of effectiveness. The program may also make information available about its budget, funding sources, and any challenges or issues it faces.
By being transparent about its activities and progress, the Arizona 9-1-1 Program can help to build trust and confidence with its stakeholders, including the public, elected officials, and other partners. It can also help ensure that the program is accountable for its programs and meeting the community's needs.
The NG9-1-1 project is a statewide effort to modernize and improve the 9-1-1 system in Arizona through the integration of various technologies and implementation of new protocols and standards, led by the Arizona Department of Administrations (ADOA) 9-1-1 Program and funded through a combination of state and federal grants and user fees, to enhance the ability of 9-1-1 responders to quickly and effectively respond to emergencies and provide more reliable 9-1-1 services to the state's residents.
The Arizona 9-1-1 Program is responsible for managing and improving the state's 9-1-1 system, working in collaboration with local public safety answering points (PSAPs) and continually updating its administrative codes to ensure the effective and efficient operation of the system.
The Arizona 9-1-1 Program is working on validating and aggregating statewide geospatial data to improve the accuracy and reliability of the data used in the state's NG9-1-1 system and to ensure that the system can effectively locate and route emergency calls to the appropriate public safety answering point (PSAP).
The Arizona 9-1-1 monitors PSAP call performance times for the 81 PSAPs to ensure that emergency calls are handled efficiently and effectively.
The Arizona 9-1-1 Advisory Board advises the Arizona 9-1-1 Program on issues related to the planning, operation, and maintenance of the state's 9-1-1 system. It makes recommendations on policies, procedures, and projects related to 9-1-1 services in the state.

The Arizona 9-1-1 Program conducted a 15 9-1-1 system GIS Gap Assessment to identify gaps or deficiencies in the availability and accuracy of geographic information system (GIS) data within the state's 9-1-1 system to determine improvements or upgrades be needed to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the system.
The Arizona 9-1-1 Program oversees the implementation of Text to 9-1-1 in the state, a service that allows people to send text messages to 9-1-1 to request emergency assistance.
