Our Mission

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

CBC’s pursuit of its mission is embodied in four interrelated roles

CBC is a watchdog

The Commission’s scrutiny of the efficiency and fiscal standing of government provides a continuous and reliable presence in policy decisions

CBC is a research organization

The most pressing issues facing the City and State are subjected to in-depth study, the results of which are assembled into published reports that include recommendations for improved performance

CBC is a monitor of implementation

The Commission follows up on its suggestions by tracking public officials' progress-or lack thereof-toward implementing change

CBC is a disseminator of information

CBC is a ready reference for the news media, other civic groups, the concerned public, and public officials and acts as a resource for nonpartisan information on the city and state budgets and the delivery of services to New Yorkers.
