Subseries 9. Office of Policy Development, Walt Plosila

Scope and Content Notes:

The Office of Policy Development (OPD), originally named the Office of Policy and Planning, was established by Executive Order of the Governor on September 18, 1979. Its role was to assist in establishing policies relating to economic development, human services, public safety and other areas, to work closely with Committees of the Cabinet, and to respond to issues which involved more than one agency or programmatic area. Their primary duties were broadly issue related, for example: to develop new program initiatives and suggest changes to existing programs, to assess feasibility of ideas and proposed changes, to assess effectiveness of policies, and monitor federal actions affecting the Commonwealth. In other words, OPD can be seen as a foundation under all policies and achievements and, in this case, an invaluable resource.

Walt Plosila served as Director of the Office of Policy and Development, 1979-1983. His files are arranged in alphabetical order by topic. It is fair to say they are voluminous. The files contain, for example: memos, correspondence, reports, policies, background information, and news clippings. Topics, just for example, include: Ben Franklin Partnership (with which Plosila was a primary participant), coal, energy, housing, PUC, PSEA, steel, "Choices," block grants, boarding homes, environment, PEMA, rails, community affairs, low level waste, children, and Liquor Control Board (LCB). Researchers should note that related topics are separated due to the alphabetical order. For example, an issue such as the environment would relate to other topics such as: mines, coal, low level waste, etc. Or the topic "energy" would involve those same, and other, topics. Being creative and persistent will definitely pay off.
