1974 - COC's new Cougar Stadium opens for first game of football season; Harbor beats COC, 26-21 [story]


Government Technology magazine has recognized the Los Angeles County Office of the Assessor with the prestigious Excellence in Technology Award for the implementation of the Assessor Modernization Project.

Assessor Jeffrey Prang was presented the award Tuesday during the Los Angeles Digital Government Summit Conference, a two-day event highlighting ingenuity in information technology taking place in public sector organizations.

In June 2015 Prang began the implementation of AMP, a five-year technology overhaul of the department. AMP is now in Phase II and the new system has already produced a number of pinnacle improvements, including a public data information interface known as the Assessor Portal.

The Assessor Portal allows users to go online and simply type in a parcel address, locate a property, and access up to 32 years worth of assessment data.

Additionally, a new application has been developed that serves as a “mobile briefcase” allowing appraisers to perform functions that formerly required in-office access.

“The Assessor’s Modernization Project is advancing rapidly, in fact, a significant update is scheduled later this week that will integrate other property tax agency’s data into the Portal,” Prang said. “This update will allow us to better serve the public by keeping information accessible on one platform. Once complete, the project will serve as a model program for other assessors in California.”
