Operations Innovations Team (OIT)

The Operations Innovation Team (OIT) brings together public and private sector talent, innovation, and expertise to address long standing operational city government challenges to improve efficiency, produce budgetary savings and leverage the City’s assets to spur economic development. Partnering with the Los Angeles Coalition for the Economy and Jobs, the OIT is supported by funders like 21st Century Fox, and works in collaboration with local academic partners such as UCLA, USC, and Pepperdine.

The OIT has three objectives: 1) improving the City’s procurement and contracting; 2) establishing a portfolio of the City’s real estate and land assets; and 3) reducing workforce injuries and costs.  Under the Mayor’s leadership, and working closely with the City Council and related City Departments, the OIT is developing thoughtful and strategic methods to drive immediate action and implement long-term reform.
