Managing Director’s Office

What we do

The Managing Director’s Office (MDO) is a cabinet-level office with oversight of the City’s operating departments. The MDO works in coordination with individual operating departments to implement the Mayor’s vision and deliver efficient, effective, and responsive public services in every neighborhood in Philadelphia. We also play a major role in creating new policies and making sure they are enacted successfully. Governing a city the size of Philadelphia is complicated and requires an office like ours to make sure all the pieces work together.

The Managing Director’s Office is organized around five cabinets, each overseeing the departments of specific program areas, including:

  • Community and Culture
  • Criminal Justice and Public Safety
  • Health and Human Services
  • Public Safety
  • Transportation, Infrastructure, and Sustainability
