2011 Mayoral Transition Report

Dear Members of the Mayor-Elect Transition Team:

To assist you in your work and facilitate an efficient, effective, and transparent transition between my administration and that of Mayor-elect Emanuel, I directed my staff to prepare this report summarizing City department and sister agency operations.

The document includes for each department and agency:

  • A narrative describing mission and core functions
  • A summary of key services
  • A budget and personnel summary and lists of major contracts, capital projects and employee unions
  • An organizational chart
  • Performance measures
  • List of City boards and commissions

It is an honor and privilege to serve the residents of our great City, and I know we share a mutual goal of ensuring that the transition of responsibility for governing our City is seamless for Chicago’s residents, businesses and visitors.

My staff and I look forward to working with you to ensure that we keep Chicago moving forward.
