The Office of Inspector General as part of efforts to increase transparency has published three additional advisory letters online.
“The Office of Inspector General is opening the doors of state government in order to strengthen public trust,” said Aries Dela Cruz, Director of Strategic Initiatives. “This weekend, as we celebrate George Washington’s birthday, we are reminded of the importance of honesty as a core value of our country. The proactive disclosure of these documents reflects the Inspector General’s commitment to increasing transparency and openness, and most importantly, helps improve how our state government works.”
These advisory letters to state agencies and authorities outline relevant findings and recommendations of matters that were referred to the Inspector General. The ongoing publication of such materials is in keeping with the Inspector General’s Government Transparency Initiative, as mandated by Governor Kathy Hochul. Portions of the records have been redacted due to privacy concerns and exceptions from disclosure as mandated by New York’s Freedom of Information Law (FOIL).
The following materials are now online:
The materials are now available on the “Public Information” page of ig.ny.gov (note the filters for “Reports” and “Letters” on the left-hand column). More historical investigative reports and advisory letters will be published on a rolling basis on the Inspector General’s website.
