A Local Law in relation to an open data law agency compliance examination

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Open data law agency compliance examination. a. An office or agency designated by the mayor shall conduct a series of examinations and verifications, as described in subdivision c, and make recommendations to improve the disclosure and inclusion of all public data sets required to be on the single web portal pursuant to section 23-502 of the administrative code of the city of New York.

                     b. Within 60 days of the effective date of this local law, an office or agency designated by the mayor shall present to the commissioner of investigation a plan for conducting the examinations and verifications described in subdivision c. The commissioner of investigation shall review such plan to ensure that it conforms with either a generally accepted auditing process or a process that the department of investigation would itself use in such an examination. The commissioner of investigation shall report to both the mayor and the council when a plan has been approved. The office or agency designated by the mayor may amend the plan with the approval of the commissioner of investigation.

c. Not later than December 1, 2016, and each December 1 thereafter for the next two years, the office or agency designated by the mayor shall conduct an examination and verification of the compliance with the requirements of subdivision a of section 23-502 of the administrative code of the city of New York, of no less than three mayoral agencies and submit the findings of such examination and verification to the mayor, the council and the examined mayoral agencies. Such findings shall include a list of all public data sets that such mayoral agencies did not make available on the single web portal in accordance with subdivision a of section 23-502 of the administrative code of the city of New York or disclose in the agency compliance plan required by section 23-506 of the administrative code of the city of New York as of the date of the findings, as well as a description of any deviations in the examination and verification process from the plan approved pursuant to subdivision b. For the findings due December 1, 2016, the mayoral agencies examined shall at a minimum consist of the department of sanitation, the department of correction and the department of housing preservation and development. For the findings due December 1, 2017, the mayoral agencies examined shall at a minimum consist of the department of buildings, the department of environmental protection and the fire department. For the findings due December 1, 2018, the mayoral agencies examined shall at a minimum consist of the business integrity commission, the department of transportation and the department of small business services. In preparing such findings, the office or agency designated by the mayor shall accept suggestions from the public as to possible public data sets within mayoral agencies that have not yet been disclosed.

d. Not later than December 1, 2019, the office or agency designated by the mayor shall submit a written report to the mayor and the council describing the city’s compliance with the requirements of subdivision a of section 23-502 of the administrative code of the city of New York, including a complete list of public data sets discovered by the office or agency designated by the mayor that were not previously made available on the single web portal or disclosed in the agency compliance plan and recommendations to improve the disclosure and inclusion of all public data sets required to be on the single web portal. In preparing this report, the office or agency designated by the mayor shall also accept suggestions from the public as to possible public data sets within mayoral agencies that have not yet been disclosed.

e. The report and findings required by this local law shall be posted on the city’s website no later than ten days after being submitted.
