Bringing leading private sector practices to government
With a 2016 budget of over $94 billion, 110 executive agencies and authorities with over 224,000 employees, and $198 billion in contracts New York’s complex operations warrant a comprehensive risk management system. In 2015, Governor Andrew Cuomo implemented just such a system to ensure that efficient and responsive government services are provided to New York’s almost 20 million residents.
New York’s new system is designed to capture the dynamic and efficient aspects of private sector risk management strategies while remaining true to the fundamental purpose of government – to serve the people and safeguard their wellbeing. In this way, unlike government regulatory organizations, New York’s risk management system embeds experienced attorneys within its agencies and authorities to advocate for the swift resolution of complex problems through early detection and the promotion of ethical and responsive action.
