Alphabet Soup

For better or worse, we use a lot of acronyms and abbreviations here at the City. Alphabet Soup is a new feature article to help us all better understand these acronyms – and what each other is talking about. (Remember, whenever you are writing or speaking externally – whether outside your immediate work team or outside the City workplace – use the full name and descriptions that your audiences will understand.)

Do you have an acronym or abbreviation you’d like included in the next installment of Alphabet Soup? Email [email protected].
