In August of 2013, the Mayor’s Innovation Delivery Team issued a call to all city employees for new ideas on how the city could reduce waste, cut red tape and save money on operations. Those city employees that participated by sharing their expert suggestions with upper management were rewarded for their contributions. The program was hosted on innovation platform, IdeaScale.
