Kerry O’Connor, the city’s new innovation officer, is seeking $180,500 to provide “end to end innovation management services.” According to the backup material for this item, the professional services contract with BrightIdea Inc. of San Francisco would help the chief innovation officer to “mobilize energy, create momentum and drive toward viable ideas and projects to further the city’s goal of being the Best Managed and Most Livable City.” The software package, aptly named Innovation Suite, is touted as the latest software package for “innovation administrators and idea contributors.”
