NEW YORK—The de Blasio administration today released the Mayor’s Management Report (MMR) for fiscal year 2016, an analysis of City agencies’ performance from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016. In fiscal year 2016, 59% of indicators show improved or stable performance, compared to 57% in fiscal year 2015 and 56% in fiscal year 2014. For critical indicators, which are key measures of agency performance, 56% show improved or stable performance in fiscal year 2016, compared to 56% in fiscal year 2015 and 55% in fiscal year 2014. The MMR presents more than 2,000 metrics from City agencies, showing the City’s performance in providing services to New Yorkers.
“From increases in the number of IDNYC cards and graduation rates, to decreases in murders and emergency response times, we’re seeing improvements across the board in key areas,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “This MMR highlights all of the hard work we’ve done to lift up all New Yorkers and make this city a stronger and more equitable place to live.”
“The MMR is a vital instrument of public accountability, transparency, and data-driven performance management, and we’re proud of its evolution under Mayor de Blasio’s leadership,” said Mindy Tarlow, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Operations. “From fundamental service delivery that New Yorkers count on every day, to innovative, multi-agency initiatives such as ThriveNYC, the MMR reflects the far-reaching work of City government.”
