The Mayor's Management Report (MMR), which is mandated by the City Charter, serves as a public account of the performance of 45 City agencies, measuring whether they are delivering services efficiently, effectively and expeditiously. The MMR is released twice a year. The Preliminary MMR provides an early update of how the City is performing four months into the fiscal year. The final MMR, published each September, looks retrospectively at the City's performance during the prior fiscal year.
The MMR also reflects the City's values and priorities, as City leadership focuses on equity, equality and opportunity. In the MMR, each agency section provides a brief "Focus on Equity" statement. This statement gives agencies an opportunity to articulate how they are working to promote fair delivery and quality of services among and across groups of people and places in support of the goals of equity, equality and opportunity for all New York City residents.
Agency performance reporting is part of the Citywide Performance Reporting (CPR) tool. It presents critical performance measures from 44 City agencies in an easy-to-use online format. Most of the data in CPR is updated monthly, on the first of every month. Users can search for measures of various services, analyze long-term trends and review agencies' key performance measures.
NYC Open Data makes data generated by various City agencies and other City organizations available for public use. As part of an initiative to improve the accessibility, transparency, and accountability of City government, this catalog offers access to a repository of government-produced, machine-readable data sets. Anyone can use these data sets to participate in and improve government by conducting research and analysis or creating applications, thereby gaining a better understanding of the services provided by City agencies and improving the lives of citizens and the way in which government serves them.
