NEW YORK—The de Blasio administration today released the Mayor’s Management Report (MMR) for fiscal year 2015, an analysis of City agencies’ performance from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015. In fiscal year 2015, 57 percent of indicators show improved or stable performance, compared to 59 percent in fiscal year 2014 and 53 percent in fiscal year 2013. For critical indicators, 57 percent show improved or stable performance, compared to 57 percent in fiscal year 2014 and 49 percent in fiscal year 2013. The MMR reports more than 2,000 metrics for city agencies, showing the City’s performance in providing services to New Yorkers.
“From decreases in major felony crimes and traffic and fire fatalities to increases in assistance to small businesses and undocumented youths, we’re proud to see improved performance across the board,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “The MMR reveals in granular detail what is involved in the work of governing, and the efforts underway toward accomplishing this administration’s goals—with an inclusive, equitable approach to meeting the needs of all New Yorkers.”
“Effective government performance must take into account the fair delivery and quality of services across the locations and populations of our city. The MMR’s focus on equity continues to evolve as agencies advance their work and launch new programs and initiatives that create a New York that is fair and accessible to all who live here,” said Operations Director Mindy Tarlow.
