City Council Votes to Override Mayoral Veto of Outsourcing Accountability Act
The City Council voted to override a Mayoral veto of the Council’s Outsourcing Accountability Act. This legislation would amend an existing law to require the City to perform cost benefit analyses for certain outsourcing contracts. It would also increase transparency by requiring public notice of intended service contracts, giving City employees and private vendors alike increased time to better prepare to compete for the opportunity to fill those needs. The City Council unanimously passed this bill on October 5th and the Mayor informed the Council of his veto on November 4th. For more information, click here.

City Comptroller John C. Liu Released Independent Actuarial Review of Pension Funds

“As required by City Charter, my office engaged an actuary, the Hay Group, to conduct an independent audit and experience study of the City Actuary’s methodology, calculations, assumptions and data used in actuarial calculations of the New York City Pension Funds. The report has been presented to the City Actuary, with whom we have had continued discussions on this topic, for review. We await his response and subsequent presentations to the Pension Boards.” For more information, click here.

New York City Students Show Significant Gains Since 2003, Far Outpace Rest ofNewYork Stateon National Math and Reading Exams
Schools Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott announced that scores for New York City students on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) have improved significantly on three of the four math and reading tests between 2003 and 2011. This year’s results – released as part of the Nation’s Report Card: Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA) Reading and Mathematics 2011 – show that since 2003, New York City public school students improved an average of eight points in 4th grade math, six points in 8th grade math, and seven points in 4th grade reading—all statistically significant increases that mirror or exceed trends seen across the nation. Also since 2003, the gap between black and white students in New York City has narrowed on all four exams, and on all four since 2009. The average score in both math and reading for black fourth graders in New York City is now higher than for black fourth graders nationwide and in the rest of New York State. On 8th grade reading, New York City students showed a gain of three points since 2003, not a statistically significant increase. This trend highlights the challenge of improving literacy in middle school grades, and the need for a more rigorous curriculum aligned with the new Common Core Standards.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that $785 million has been awarded through the Regional Economic Development Council initiative, continuing the Governor’s efforts to redesign the way state government works in order to drive economic growth and create jobs.

Attorney General Schneiderman and Senator Gillibrand Announce Federal Measure Crack Down on Illegal Guns on The Heels of A.G.’s Investigation Finding Blatant Disregard of Current Law
Just days after New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman’s undercover investigation led to criminal charges against 10 New York gun dealers for illegal gun sales, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) was joined by Schneiderman, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and New Yorkers Against Gun Violence to announce the introduction of federal legislation to crack down on corrupt gun dealers and eliminate the steady flow of illegal guns into New York.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Our new feature Food for Thought presents recently issued policy or research reports which you may find of interest.

Fighting Red Tape & Technical Errors: Behind the Scenes of the Section 8 Housing Program

The Office of Bill De Blasio, public advocate for the city of New York, released a red tape report in November 2011 regarding the New York City Housing Authority’s Section 8 program. The housing vouchers programs allow 100,000 low-income families to choose and lease or purchase safe, decent, and affordable privately-owned rental housing. The aim of this program is also to “transform distressed neighborhoods and public and assisted projects into viable and sustainable mixed-income neighborhoods”. Unfortunately, the agency is failing to provide on-time rent at the appropriate level due to “bureaucratic red tape and technical errors.” A few other main reasons for the failures are problems in the Recertification Process and problems with the Lease Renewal Process. The Public Advocate’s office provides administrative reforms and recommendations regarding how to address problems with annual recertification process, ensure a timely response to interim recertification applications and improve communication with landlords and tenants.
