UPDATE: BOMA San Francisco Members Meet with Mayor Ed Lee's Chief Innovation Officer

BOMA San Francisco Members:

UPDATE - April 1, 2015

BOMA San Francisco's Government Affairs Committee members invited Mr. Jay Nath, the Mayor's Chief Innovation Officer, to a recent meeting to provide an update on his office's progress from our initial meeting with him in 2013 (details below).

Indeed, a number of exciting initiatives have been started, are in-progress, or have been completed. One project in particular - The San Francisco Business Portal - is now our City’s primary online business resource. With comprehensive information and tailored tools, the Portal helps individuals easily navigate the steps to start, manage, and grow a business, quickly learn what it takes to be compliant, and obtain resources along the way.

Note that Mr. Nath is willing to help our industry and all citizens of San Francisco by improving efficiency and productivity at City Hall using technology.

If you have an idea on ways to improve our City's government processes, please email
