The Phoenix mayor and City Council, private sector members of the Innovation and Efficiency Task Force (I&E), city management and employees celebrated the task force’s accomplishments recently at the City Council meeting.

In less than three years, the savings level has grown to $59.7 million, with a new goal now set for $100 million by December 2015.

City Manager David Cavazos established the I&E in December 2009, with private sector members and city executives serving together. Also, the mayor and City Council supported creation of a new council subcommittee chaired by Councilman Bill Gates. Ideas flow through the task force to the subcommittee and then to the full City Council.

The city is aggressively pursuing increased savings and efficiencies, working toward the new $100 million goal in the next three years.

The Task Force set new priorities this year, with Cavazos establishing workgroups in communications, process improvement, regional public partnerships, right sourcing and technology.
