Section 2800 of Public Authorities Law requires authorities to submit annual reports to the Authorities Budget Office (ABO). The ABO - in collaboration with Open Data NY - has made annual report information reported by public authorities available for the general public to download, sort, search, and analyze.
The links at the bottom of this page lead to different datasets that include a wide variety of information reported by public authorities such as financial data, salaries, procurement reports, schedule of debt, and IDA projects among other datasets that contain relevant information that increase the transparency and accountability of public authorities.
Data Collection Methodology
The datasets are compiled from information submitted by public authorities in their annual reports to the ABO in the Public Authorities Reporting Information System (PARIS). There are times that public authorities may revise and resubmit data for prior reporting periods to correct any errors identified. These revisions are generally limited to the most recent reporting period. As a result, data for the most recent reporting period may be revised in future updates to the dataset.
The public authorities’ information included in the reports are generally for fiscal years ending in 2011 and later. The only exception is the IDA projects dataset that starts in 2009. Contact the ABO at firstname.lastname@example.org if you require reports from previous years.
Limitations of Data Use
The datasets are updated annually. As a result, data revised and resubmitted by a public authority between updates may not be reflected. All information is as reported by the public authorities in PARIS. The ABO has not confirmed the accuracy of the information.
