As mandated by Section 12 of the New York City Charter, the Mayor reports to the public and the City Council twice yearly on the performance of municipal agencies in delivering services. The annual Mayor's Management Report (MMR) covers the twelve-month fiscal year period, from July through June. The Preliminary Mayor's Management Report (PMMR) covers performance for the first four months of the fiscal year, from July through October. The Charter provisions governing the submission of the MMR can be viewed on the Mayor's Office of Operations' website at www.nyc.gov/mmr.
The MMR and PMMR cover the operations of City agencies that report directly to the Mayor. Three additional non-Mayoral agencies are included, for a total of 45 agencies and organizations. Activities that have direct impact on New Yorkers - including the provision of support services to other agencies - are the focus of the report. The report is organized by agency around a set of services listed at the beginning of each agency chapter. Within service areas, goals articulate the agency's aspirations. The services and goals were developed through collaboration between the Office of Operations and the senior managers of each agency.
The Mayor struck deals with the city's two largest labor unions in June that provide paid parental leave to more than 200,000 municipal workers. The two deals have a number of major differences. IBO takes a closer look, examining the assumptions and estimating the costs to the city.
