In early 2014, the Mayor’s Office commissioned a review of the structure and responsibilities for the City’s Office of Management and Finance. Three recommendations from that report were to consolidate revenue collection, consolidate facilities management and coordinate professional services contracting. The CAO invited four other bureau directors – from Environmental Services, Fire, Parks and Transportation – to guide a research effort to look for opportunities to make these services areas more efficient and/or more effective.
The research began in the summer of 2014 and will wrap up in early 2015. OMF will share the results of the research with the group of directors, along with all City bureaus directors, and identify opportunities to make improvements.
Information gathered from research on service consolidation and efficiency improvement.
