I am the Program Manager for The New York Transparency at Reclaim New York. I attended an event BetaNYC hosted at Civic Hall about a year ago about FOIA and enjoyed it very much.
The project I’m working on just launched a new online platform that allows citizens and public officials to evaluate the online transparency and accessibility of their local governments. The evaluation is conducted by matching a URL from the local government website with the corresponding indicator.
Right now, New York City is listed, but I hope to eventually expand the platform to cover City and State departments/agencies.
Anyway, I thought this community might find it interesting.
