Policy Analyst, Performance Management and Reporting
Position Title: Policy Analyst, Performance Management and Reporting
Job ID Number: 36470
About the Office:
The Mayor’s Office of Operations works to make New York City government more effective and efficient. The Office oversees the daily operations of City agencies, coordinates City initiatives, and assists agencies in improving service quality and in measuring performance to provide greater accountability.
The Performance Management and Reporting Team (PMRT) within Operations monitors, reports, and analyzes the performance of City agencies. The Team provides guidance to agencies and staff on performance reporting and performance management focused on improving public access and use of performance data. PMRT also collaborates with agencies to develop and improve goals and indicators to explain data trends and broaden the understanding of key metrics. In addition to producing semi-annual Mayor’s Management Reports (MMR) and the digital Dynamic MMR reporting platform, the Team conducts research on trends and best practices in data driven performance management and engages agencies on targeted performance improvement projects.
The Office of Operations is committed to achieving equity and creating an inclusive workplace. The City understands equity to mean that an individual’s demographic identity – particularly, but not exclusive to, their race, ethnicity, gender identity, income, sexual orientation, and/or disabilities – should not determine their life outcomes. To foster an inclusive workplace, Operations is committed to providing opportunities for staff development and effective team building, open and transparent communication, enhancing our equity literacy, and providing space for exploring issues of diversity. We continue to strive for a workforce that better reflects the diversity of New York City.
