NYC launches portal for city agency reports

New York City is now making city agency reports available for public viewing in one consolidated hub. 

The new online portal, currently in beta for gathering feedback and hosted on GitHub, stores thousands of reports issued by NYC agencies—for which the city’s records department serves as the historical repository.

The site lets the public easily and quickly search through city reports by document title, description, agency, type of report and category. The portal features a mobile-friendly design and embedded PDFs, which allow users to view documents without manually saving to their computer.

So far, about 12,000 publications are currently online, the city said in its announcement, with 7,000 more submitted and others being added as they are issued. 

Led by the Department of Records and Information Services and the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications, the portal was built with the help of students from NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering. 

Upcoming features include full-text search, relevancy scores, CSV export and APIs that will allow other applications to access the database.
