Public Technology and Innovation Team

Changing the way government thinks and works.

What we do

Our team enables creative government and offers residents equitable access to technology and services. Our guiding principles are to:

  1. Try new things and improve old ones.
  2. Help people access and use technology.
  3. Build capacity to help government solve problems.
  4. Improve public services for our residents.

We work to:

  • Provide cross departmental support for greater efficiency, equity, and quality.
  • Develop a public sector culture that encourages employees to think and work differently.
  • Advance public technology through digital equity, smart cities, and inclusive communications.
  • Establish relationships with academia and the corporate sector to support workforce needs, research and development, and awareness.

Our programs include DigitalEquityPHL and SmartCityPHL. We partner closely with the Digital Services, Creative Services, and Communications teams within the Office of Innovation and Technology (OIT), and we also work to develop the City's innovation ecosystem.
