Program Year: 2021

Abstract:
ABSTRACT OF THE PROGRAM On April 28, 2020, the Los Angeles County (County) Board of Supervisors (Board) directed the Executive Officer of the Board to work with the Quality and Productivity Commission, in consultation with the Small Business Commission and Citizens’ Economy and Efficiency Commission, to create a working group to 1) encourage innovative ideas from County employees, businesses, and labor partners that could streamline the County’s contracting process, encourage strategies to engage and assist businesses, and identify potential cost- savings actions that could be taken by each of the 37 County departments; and 2) establish a website and email contact to accept and promote innovative and thoughtful ideas. These directives are part of a comprehensive countywide effort, inclusive of partnerships with the community, businesses, and nonprofits, to identify actionable ideas to spur economic recovery during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.The Prosper LA Working Group was formed from this collaboration. On June 30, 2020, the working group launched the Prosper LA website at https://prosperla.lacounty.gov/. Between July 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020, the website received 118 ideas from County employees, residents, businesses, and nonprofits.
