The 2019 Good Government Awards, held on March 6, recognized outstanding job performance of those serving the City and County of San Francisco.
When disaster strikes, San Franciscans rely on first responders — and on the unsung efforts of the city employees who create and maintain the many systems that keep support services running. The leaders of the multidisciplinary, cross-departmental team known as SF Prepared are skilled, results-driven collaborators who have executed a number of complex but essential finance and administrative projects involving city payroll, digital backup systems and the “Disaster Academy” curriculum to prepare city finance and admin staff. Their behind-the-scenes work, while invisible to almost everyone, makes the city more resilient and responsive to meeting public needs in the event of disaster.
