De Blasio Administration Releases Mayor's Management Report For Fiscal Year 2018

September 17, 2018

NEW YORK—The de Blasio administration today released the Mayor’s Management Report for Fiscal 2018, an analysis of City agencies’ performance from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. The MMR presents more than 1,700 metrics from 45 City agencies that measure the City’s performance in providing services to New Yorkers.

“The MMR holds us accountable to our core mission of providing better services to all New Yorkers. This year, we’re seeing falling crime, the creation and preservation of more affordable apartments, and improvements in graduation rates for our kids,” said Mayor de Blasio. “Measuring the performance and progress of every City agency makes us more effective in our fight to make this the fairest and safest city in the world.”

“It is at the center of our mission at Operations to find ways for the City to strive for improved efficiency, effectiveness and equity. The MMR is a key tool for measuring and tracking the City’s performance,” said Emily W. Newman, Acting Director of the Mayor’s Office of Operations. “I thank the staff at Operations who work diligently year-round to make good on this commitment.”

The MMR grew out of the 1970s fiscal crisis and today is a valuable tool for holding City government accountable. Both MMR and Preliminary Mayor’s Management Report (PMMR), which covers the first four months of the fiscal year and is released in January, are mandated by Section 12 of the New York City Charter.
