From a City of Philadelphia press release:

Mayor Michael A. Nutter signed an executive order to establish the Office of Innovation and Technology (IT). This Office, which will replace the Division of Technology, will oversee the City’s technology infrastructure and services. The executive order also established the Technology Advisory Committee, an advisory committee chaired by the Managing Director [Rich Negrin], which will prioritize the implementation of proposed technology investments and service upgrades, identify best practices and provide counsel to IT. Last week, Mayor Nutter appointed Adel Ebeid as the Chief Innovation Officer (CIO).

This is the Advisory Committee that former city CTO Allan Frank will lead from the private sector.

It’s not the first name change for the agency either. Under the Street administration, Dianah Neff was the Chief Information Officer in charge of the Mayor’s Office of Information Services.
