Transparency Project

Transparency is the cornerstone of good government.

The Transparency Project is a collaborative effort between NCS and its regulatory partners to increase understanding and awareness of the cannabis industry through public data sharing. Regulatory partners will share the interactive dashboard with a variety of data features carefully curated, aggregated, and anonymized to respect individual privacy. The California Cannabis Authority will be the first agency to feature the Transparency Report.

“The NCS Platform provides our members current, actionable intelligence on commercial cannabis activities in their jurisdictions, allowing them to make decisions quickly, efficiently, and founded on facts.  The new Transparency Report from NCS allows CCA and its members to further extend the Platform’s value by providing the public valuable insights into commercial cannabis in their communities.”    – Greg Turner, Executive Director of the California Cannabis Authority

Greater Efficiency

Budgets are constrained now more than ever, so it’s crucial to have the right tools to deploy limited resources in the most effective manner possible. By implementing a reg-tech solution like the NCS Platform, agencies will be more efficient with their time and can do the work they were elected to do while having the tools to support their goals. For example, public safety initiatives surrounding high-risk or cash-intensive industries can be assessed and actioned within minutes rather than having to jump through hurdles.

Regulation can have long-lasting implications for the communities they serve. Combining data-driven decisions with enhanced evaluation tools builds a stronger regulatory framework, which benefits the community.

Combining efficiency and planning ensures that regulatory agencies can collect and realize revenue expectations with confidence. Agencies know what to expect from their licensees based on displays within the NCS Platform.
