System Description

The E-Government Office is currently in the process of developing the City’s Intranet, to be known as “NYC SHARE”. Using our existing infrastructure, the Intranet will allow employees from multiple City agencies to communicate, share information and collaborate in a new and improved manner. The Intranet is being developed using the S/390 as the central web server (Cityweb), which will then connect to agency specific Intranet sites. This model allows the agencies to maintain responsibility for content and application management, while providing employees with access to the information they require.

“Corridor”, a product marketed by Esker U.S. and installed at DoITT, is a web-to-host gateway that provides Internet access to data from legacy systems. It works by screen scraping CICS screens generated from mainframe applications and converting them to Internet format. Selected fields can be displayed and repositioned on the Internet screen. Any standard browser can be used to access this data via NYC’s web site, NYC.GOV.

The Department of Sanitation’s recycling and garbage collection schedules are currently in production using “Corridor”. A user enters an address and the schedule is displayed.

System Description

NYCSERV is a major, multi-agency effort to provide the citizens of New York City with convenient access to numerous government services. Begun in Spring 1998, it is a five-year undertaking that will be implemented in a phased-in approach. When fully implemented, it will consolidate various citywide licensing, collections, payment and adjudication functions currently scattered throughout City agencies.

Access will be available through the NYC.GOV web site as well as via IVR, at kiosks, and at most City agencies and payment centers. This e-government approach reduces the need for the public to come to city offices. Centralized business centers will be established in each borough to provide the related services. In addition, the payment centers and kiosks “push” city offices out to the neighborhoods so services are closer to the public.

Functions implemented as of February 2001 are:

NYC Property - provides the public with access to real property information maintained by the City’s Department of Finance (DOF) and water billing information maintained by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

ePermits - allows for City agencies and not-for-profit organizations to apply to the City’s Department of Transportation for parking permits.

Scofftow Assignments - provides calendaring management for city marshals and sheriffs.

Fairtax Inquiry - provides online access to property information in DOF’s Fairtax application

PVO Inquiry - provides access to information regarding outstanding parking tickets and the ability to pay parking tickets on the Internet by credit card.
