NYC Improves Online Access to City Laws, Procurement Notices

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D-NYC) has signed two bills that improve government transparency.

The first, Introductory 363-A, requires online posting of the City Record -- NYC’s daily list of procurement notices, bid solicitations and awards -- within 24 hours of the print edition publishing.

The second, Introductory 149-A, mandates that New York City laws and its Charter be published on the Web.

Any changes to the rules must be updated online within 30 days. Mayor De Blasio called the Aug 7 bill signings an advancement of his administration’s goal of being the “most technology-friendly and innovation-driven city in the world."
