NYC Comptroller makes use of technology to increase transparency in government

Here is an example of NYC Comptroller Liu using simple technology to increase transparency in government operations. I think it's another great idea by our Comptroller and his team. The cost should be minimal but the transparency in government, priceless! It’s a great move to take government out of the back room and put it in full view of the public eye where it belongs. Once more Kudos to our Comptroller and his team.


1st NYC Pension Fund to Ever Do So
NEW YORK, NY – Today, the $42 billion New York City Teachers’ Retirement System — the city’s largest pension fund — will conduct the first-ever live webcast of the Board’s regularly scheduled Investment Meeting. The meeting will begin at 9:30 A.M. with online access available at:

Last week, Comptroller John C. Liu announced Pension NYC, a new transparency initiative to provide taxpayers, retirees and the general public unprecedented access to information about the $114.9 billion New York City Pension System through a number of different tools. Today marks the first phase of that initiative.

After the webcast concludes, the meeting will be archived on The Comptroller’s Office website. The meeting will be available for on-demand viewing on 4/8/2011.
