New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer and the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) today announced that information for NYCHA contracts, spending, and payroll will now be publicly available and accessible. Through Checkbook NYC — an award-winning, first-of-its-kind online tool that provides near-real-time data on the City Mayoral agencies’ budget, revenue, spending, contracts, and payroll — New Yorkers will now be able to view how the largest public housing authority in the country spends its dollars with external vendors and contractors hired to perform services.
Checkbook NYC is an online financial transparency tool, created by REI Systems, that puts the city’s spending in the hands of its citizens by providing them with transparent information on the city’s budget, revenue, and spending.
Now, in 2020, the tool is continuing to be adopted by the city’s authorities with the addition of NYCHA using Checkbook NYC to continue the city’s goal of an open government that is accountable, approachable, and accessible to everyone.
