NEW YORK—The de Blasio administration today released the Mayor’s Management Report for Fiscal 2019, an analysis of City agencies’ performance from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019. The MMR presents more than 2000 indicators from 45 City agencies that measure the City’s performance in providing services to New Yorkers.
“Every year, the Mayor’s Management Report holds us accountable and tells New Yorkers how we’ve performed for them,” said Mayor de Blasio. “The results are in and we have a safer and more equitable city today than we did even a year ago. This is the standard we’ll hold ourselves to as we strive to be even better next year.”
“The Mayor's Management Report is an important opportunity to examine how our City is doing so that we can see what's working, what isn't, and help map a path ahead," said Jeff Thamkittikasem, Director of the Mayor's Office of Operations. “At Operations, performance and project management are core aspects of our work. I'm proud of the work done on this year's report, and proud of the progress we will continue to make as a City.”
The MMR, which grew out of the 1970’s fiscal crisis, is a national model 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.
