Spending Less and Creating a Smaller, More Efficient Government

In January 2010, the Phoenix City Manager created an Innovation and Efficiency Task Force comprised of city staff and public members to explore, develop and implement innovative processes that would result in a more efficient delivery of city services and maximize the use of limited taxpayer dollars. 

Since its inception, the task force has found ways to save the city more than $89 million, and the City Manager set a new goal of $100 million in total savings by December 2015. 

On this website, read the task force recommendations implemented to date, as well as related city reports regarding how the innovation and efficiency efforts are impacting the city's budget and its business processes, and news releases about accomplishments to date.

Additionally, view all of the efficiency studies created by city consultants detailing ways the city can save taxpayer dollars.
