Publish the City Record Online in more useful ways

While bulk data access to the City Record is slated to be online on or before 14 December 2014, this is just the first step in rebuilding the Department of Citywide Administrative Services’ online City Record. As the city record is the canonical database of solicitation procurement notices and awards, public hearings, meetings, court notices, property dispositions, agency public hearings, agency rules, and changes in personnel, the City Record needs to be envisioned as a portal accessible via all types of devices for all New Yorkers. Starting with real-time data feeds or APIs, reimagining this site would unlock opportunities for small business to know when and where they could bid on services and engage in government. Finally, by producing this tool in a more open format, the people of New York would finally get access to the true inner workings of government.
