Update: New York City Council Overrides Mayor’s Veto of Outsourcing Accountability Act


The New York City Council voted unanimously December 8, 2011, to override Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s veto of the Outsourcing Accountability Act. The Act amends existing law to require, among other things, that the city perform cost-benefit analyses to document cost savings for prospective outsourcing contracts, as well publicly disclose plans for intended service contracts. The City Council had initially unanimously passed this bill on October 5 (read our blog post on the Act here) and the Mayor had subsequently vetoed the Act on November 4.
