"Part of creating opportunities for all Rhode Islanders is putting their needs first and turning away from how government has always done things." — Gov. Gina Raimondo

The Rhode Island Office of Innovation inspires and accelerates innovations in our state's largest systems, from state government to education to infrastructure, with the goal of redesigning government to be more user-centered, efficient, and responsive. We use non-traditional strategies to advance this goal forward, engage local implementation partners at every stage of the process, and assess and iterate on projects every six months.
