Seeking to identify how Arizona Department of Transportation could accomplish the greatest service improvements with the most efficient use of funds, ADOT engaged ARCADIS to perform a Crash Data Collection and Analysis study and examine the possibilities offered by technological innovations such as Electronic Data Entry, Relational Database Management Systems, and Geographic Information Systems. The study resulted in a comprehensive report with three components: an examination of best practices in use in the United States today, a use case and gap analysis examining ADOT's current data work, and a technical memorandum outlining how changes could be implemented.

With the advent of multi-modal transportation planning, and given that most of the major metropolitan areas in Arizona have implemented bicycle and pedestrian plans, it is now desirable that ADOT develop a bicycle and pedestrian plan that encompasses all of Arizona. The major intent of the Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan is to provide a long-term plan for a system of shared roadways and bicycle and pedestrian facilities for the ADOT State Highway System. This includes the definition of the roles of the State and local government in the continual development of the bicycle and pedestrian transportation system in Arizona. ...

A serial listing of the publications of the Arizona Department of Mineral Resources (1939-1984) and the Arizona Department of Mines and Mineral Resources (1984-August 1990). The name change in 1984, to more accurately reflect the Department’s involvement with mining, did not affect the function or the procedures of the Department, so the publications have not been segregated.

The mission of the Ad Hoc Committee on Arizona's Business Climate was to look at the critical issues of business development, retention and expansion in Arizona. Between the months of August 2001 and December 2001, the Committee met in various locations throughout the State to hear from those directly involved with business and economic development. The goal was to find what Arizona is doing right and to identify areas that need improvement to make this the best place in the country in which to do business.

In 2002, the Arizona Legislature contracted with the National Conference of State Legislature’s National Center on Education Finance to identify the total and incremental costs associated with educating English Language Learners (ELLs) in Arizona. As they pertain to a school district’s ELL programs, incremental costs are those that provide ELL programs and that are in addition to the regular costs of conducting programs for English-proficient students. Incremental costs to educate ELL students do not include costs that replace the same types of services provided to English-proficient students.

The State And Local Arizona Documents (SALAD) collection contains documents published by the State of Arizona, its Counties, incorporated Cities or Towns, or affiliated Councils of Government; documents produced under the auspices of a state or local agency, board, commission or department, including reports made to these units; and Salt River Project, a licensed municipality. ASU is a primary collector of state publications and makes a concerted effort to acquire and catalog most materials published by state and local governmental agencies.

The ASU Digital Repository provides access to digital SALAD publications, however the ASU Libraries’ non-digitized Arizona documents can be searched through the ASU Libraries Catalog and Library One Search. For additional assistance, Ask A Government Documents Librarian.

Publications issued by the Morrison Institute for Public Programs at Arizona State University are available in the ASU Digital Repository Morrison Institute for Public Policy - Publications Archive collection.
