de Blasio Administration Releases Mayors Management Report For Fiscal Year 2021

September 18, 2021

The de Blasio administration today released the Mayor’s Management Report for Fiscal Year 2021, an analysis of City agencies’ performance from July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021. The MMR presents more than 2,000 indicators from 45 City agencies that measure the City’s performance in providing services to New Yorkers. The Fiscal Year 2021 MMR, the last of the Mayor’s tenure, features the City’s response and recovery efforts to the COVID-19 pandemic and highlights the de Blasio Administration’s achievements in education, public safety, criminal justice, and police reform, open space, transportation, access to healthcare, affordable housing, economic security, and uplifting working families.

“The Mayor’s Management Report has served as the City’s report card for decades,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “From expanding Pre-K and 3K to the creation of our affordable housing plan to driving down crime, this year’s report captures trends from the past eight years that I’m proud to share with New Yorkers. This year’s report also details how City agencies rose to meet the greatest challenge in a generation, COVID-19. Together, we will continue to drive vaccination rates upward and build a recovery for all of us.”

“For 44 years the Mayor’s Management Report has been integral to the function and efficacy of New York City’s Government. As vital as the MMR is to our government, it’s equally important for New Yorkers to see what is working, what is in progress and what needs more attention,” said Jeff Thamkittikasem, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Operations. “I want to thank the people of Operations for making this report possible and dedicating their lives to a more effective and equitable government, especially during this entire pandemic response.”

The MMR, which grew out of the 1970’s fiscal crisis, is a national model for holding City government accountable. Both the 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.
