Created by Executive Order 542 in March 2012, the Innovation Office is constantly working to improve the experience with state government for residents, businesses and municipalities. The Innovation Office is also working to boost internal government efficiencies, leverage technology to improve services and save money, and improve performance for state employees and residents alike. As the Office continues to drive innovation, efficiency, and successful service delivery for state government, updates on innovative projects and creative ways to deliver services will be posted on this site and on our blog, Mass Innovation.
